So apparently at the Springfield Sci-Tech High School prom two high school lovers named Nathan Arzola and Marco Sierra proposed to one another on the dance floor:
A lot of people are celebrating how wonderful this is, but don’t be fooled – this is the dumbest thing that has ever happened in the history of the world. And no, it has nothing to do with the fact that they are gay. My initial thought when I saw the headline was “this is the dumbest thing that has ever happened in the history of the world.” That’s when I thought it was some dumbass lovestruck boy proposing to some stupid girl who gave him a promise ring. The fact that it’s two boys changes nothing.
It’s a free country so you can do whatever you want. But the fact of the matter is that when you’re 18 you are as free as it gets, and these two just signed up to be imprisoned. I’d do just about anything to be 18 again, and so would most people reading this. What’s not to like? The world is your playground. You can make out with as many people as you want with zero consequence. You can go wherever you please and you have to answer to no one. It was great.
Fast forward to marriage and everything is changed. By then you’ve come to terms with the fact that you will never be with another person for eternity. But it’s cool because you got it all out of your system when you were younger and now you’ve got kids and you’ve learned to like to do other things that don’t involve getting wasted and chasing tail.
But these kids haven’t. They just took the first thing that came along and got engaged because they don’t know any better. And you simply cannot tell a high school kid that thinks they’re in love that they’re making a dumb choice. Because a teenager who thinks they have the whole world figured out is an immovable force of nature. Oh well, looks like they’re just gonna have to learn the hard way that they’re blowing the best years of their life on something they could’ve held off on for 15 years. Sucks to be them. Hopefully they don’t rush into their second marriages this fast.
One last thing I haven’t figured out yet with gay marriage is, who proposes to who? Like, whose idea was this proposal? Is it mutual? Because it looks like both these kids got down on their knees and popped the question. They were both prepared for it. And who is the one that walks down the aisle? Whose father gives away whom? I feel like I should know the answers to these questions but I don’t.
P.S. How the hell can you afford a ring if you’re a high school kid from Springfield? What was in that box? An IOU?
