When your mother died, she gave you her wedding ring in her will, with the instruction that you give it to the woman you’ll eventually marry. A year later you discovered online gambling and it wasn’t long before you were forced to pawn the ring. You’re older now and lonely and you want to make some semblance of the life your mother hoped you’d make for yourself. So go to the pawn shop and tell Inez behind the counter that you’d like to give her the ring you pawned if she’ll give you her hand in matrimony.
“For so very long I’ve loved you from afar Inez,” say to her.
“Que?” Inez will reply, the tears forming in her eyes.
“For so very long I wondered if you would have me. If you would think me worthy.”
“Oh!” Inez will reply. She’ll clutch the locket around her neck which you know contains the photo of her first husband, ten years deceased.
Grab her hand from the locket and hold it in yours. “You’ve mourned long enough. It’s time for someone to make you happy again.”
Point into the glass case at your mother’s ring. “You’ve had a very long time to get acclimated to it. Will you wear it for me? Inez, will you be my wife?”
Inez will take the ring from the case and she’ll put it on her finger. Then she’ll throw her arms around your neck and kiss you. And then, at long last, she’ll lay the ring’s price tag on the counter, strike through the $900 with a pen, write $500 below it, and then you’ll count out five hundred dollar bills on the counter. When Inez writes up your receipt it will feel as ceremonial as if the two of you were signing your marriage certificate.
