Let's hope this couple doesn't look at their proposal as a metaphor for their future marriage. A couple was strolling through lovely Times Square in New York on Friday when the guy got down on one knee to propose. But he fumbled the ring and it fell down a sewer grate. Ohhh man that sucks. How nervous was he that he couldn't hang on to the ring?

They asked the cops for help finding the ring, but they couldn't spot it, so the couple left. Then the next day, the cops went back in and managed to find the ring deep down in some mud but they didn't have the couple's info.

So they went to social media and tweeted a video (below) of the botched proposal and it worked. Some people helped them identify the couple, and they got the ring back to them yesterday. OH, and they even cleaned it first.
