JOHN: I don’t think it was one particular — I don’t think it was one particular moment but I knew I loved her. I knew I could see myself living with her and spending time with her forever. I knew I could envision us having kids together. And I felt like it was time to propose. She didn’t pressure me. She didn’t say, you know, it’s time to put a ring on it. It just felt like — I felt like it’s time for us to get married.
