私と結婚するか。"Kekkon shite kuremasu ka" :: "Will you marry me?"
"Isshou kimi no soba ni isasete kudasai" translates to: " Please let me be by your side for the rest of my life." "Boku o sekai-ichi shiawase na otoko ni shite" which means: "You would make me the happiest man in the world." .....
I have a Japanese girlfriend and ONE DAY I will be ready to propose marriage to her. "I am going to be asking my Japanese girlfriend to become my wife.
I plan to say it in Japanese and then repeat it in English, since our marriage will be a beautiful fusion of the two. We've never talked about what our wedding will be like, but it will entail features from both Western and Eastern marriage ceremonies, to symbolize the union.
However, I do know that she would appreciate that I would learn Japanese, and she would be just thrilled any time if I'd make an effort to say something, even if it's said with mistakes or mispronunciation. She would feel that it is a sign that I appreciate her and her culture. So I plan to do both with my proposal.
NOW... The first thing that I should do is to figure out how to propose to my girlfriend. I have a lot of freedom here since she knows that I am a gaijin and I might propose like a gaijin. But still, I will make it special for her by bringing out some of the traditions of Japan. I will pick a romantic location, and just say it from the heart. It may even be on a cruise ship to Alaska or ????
The parents are the next step. And I will work with my girlfriend to make sure that that part goes right.
We are both in love with the Islands and may just have a Waikiki Wedding some day!
