Woman Graduates & Gets Engaged Within Seconds
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A recent college grad got a special surprise at her graduation in Washington, D.C. over the weekend. As Sarah Cooper walked across the stage, her boyfriend popped the big question.
Cooper has been dating Sam Miller since the two stepped on American University’s campus four years ago as freshman. The couples’ parents made one thing clear
while they were dating.
“My mom said after graduation, it’s fair game,” Cooper said. “Before that, no marriage.”
Miller’s parents felt the same.
“I think my parents said no tattoos, no piercings and no marriage,” he said.
Miller followed both sets of parents’ wishes and waited exactly five seconds after Cooper received her under undergrad degree to bend down on one knee. The new grad said everything happened so fast, she’s not really sure what was said during the proposal.
“I think he said something about I’ve waited a long time, I can’t wait any longer, please will you marry me?” she said.
The groom-to-be made sure his new fiancé’s ring is very special. The diamonds were passed down from her grandmother and mother’s rings.
Cooper says she doesn’t want to wait to get married. She lost her dad as a child and realizes how sacred life is.
“I don’t see the point in waiting if you love the person, it just doesn’t make sense to me,” she said.
