I proposed to my now husband after only knowing him for 4 weeks. He was visiting me from the Isle of Wight, where he lived, and was suddenly taken ill and had to be admitted to hospital.

After what was a gut wrenching few days I realised that I couldn't live without him in my life, held his hand and asked him to marry me, all whilst he was still in his hospital bed hooked up to a drip. 

18 years later we are still happily married, in love and have 3 wonderful children.
