Will you marry me? Text yes or no.

According to Mashable, a U.K. survey of 7,000 women found that 17% would like to receive marriage proposals online.

Call me old fashioned – or perhaps it has something to do with my only recently gained right to marry in a handful of states – but marriage is personal. Sure, it’s exciting and you want to share it with all your Twitter buddies. It just seems like you might also like to share it with your would-be fiance. As in, touch her hand, look into her eyes.

Smart phones and social media platforms will come and go, but with any luck and a lot of work, hopefully your marriage will outlast them.
