“I went and purchased a ring that we had seen together, maybe four or five months or so prior,” he continued.
“I went back and purchased the ring and I just kind of had it stashed away in some old equipment. And I said, ‘Will you reach in there and grab something for me?'” he concluded.
“I appreciate her openness and willingness to love unconditionally. She’s been so sweet to me through a number of different trials that come to test the resilience of a union to deem whether it’s worthy or not, whether it’s durable or strong enough,” he said.
“I think now that I’m describing it as she’s standing here, it’s kind of, surreal because it’s not exaggerated. It’s absolutely true. It’s absolutely our private life,” he continued.
“This is my first time putting it into words. It’s also given me the opportunity to give it a poetic justice.”
It looks like the couple is going through one of those tests that he referred to a few years ago. Will they pass this test? They have 10 days to find out on ‘Marriage Boot Camp.’
