No, it makes perfect sense to me. You want me to propose to you - I propose to you. You say ‘No’, I say ‘Fine, I never wanna see ya again.’ You drive me nuts telling me you want me to propose again. I do. You turn me down. Next thing I know, I’m in a court of law where I’ve got to propose to you or I’ll go to jail. It’s the classic American love story.
