After being together for five years and having two children together, Charmaine Shazia believed it was time to solidify her relationship. Just before the weekend, Charmaine took her bae out for a fancy dinner on his birthday.
She then popped the big question. Charmaine said she was worried because she doesn't know any other women who have proposed to a man before. She said she did it after feeling lots of butterflies in her stomach.
Charmaine added that this proposal is a big step in her life as she has no parents or family to share her joy with. However, she is happy to have her fiancé in her life. Charmaine shared their story to the #ImStaying group on Facebook.
Her full post read:
"After 5 years and two amazing boys, on Friday I took my man out for supper for his bday at the Vulintaba hotel and popped the big question, I was so worried coz I have never heard of a woman proposing to a man but I did it after having lots off butterflies in my tummy.
"This is a big step in my life since I have no parents or family to share my joy but I'm glad I have my husband to be.Now I know I will be building my own family and a family I never had or experience. No matter what we go through in life, it's what we make of it and how much love we want to spread. #anewlife"
