You are all too nice. The suit is actually pretty fashion forward and would have looked really dapper IF he had the physique for it and the right style (especially shoes). If he is so desperate to stay in his cowboy persona why not go all the way? And I will say it - he has put on quite some weight since I last saw him. Like +25kg in what feels like two months or so. He really looks like a young, chubby Gil.

I noticed that he put on weight as well and honestly was a bit surprised.   I don't remember him looking this way in more recent pictures, say last year or so.   And there's a considerable difference from the wet t shirt picture with Lawson that was posted years ago.

Jeez, I thought Ben's scavenger hunt proposal sounded exhausting. 3 days and 3 states to propose??

And Fox News got the scoop? Interesting.

Apparently it was a “lavish, three-day proposal.” 

A little scary to think about what their first gender-reveal party will be like...

My husband proposed to me when we were away for the weekend to our university town where we met. He asked me on the citywalls on our way to a super fancy restaurant so we were all dressed up.

I like how we had a special moment (dressed up, special place, dinner right after) but it was still a very private moment.

Not a fan of the suit and cowboy boots. Should of worn jeans and a nice button down shirt. Or maybe if the suit was a solid color. Oh well, too late now. Can't  wait to see what he wears for his wedding.

Eh. Speaking as someone whose engagement was a little lackluster (I was sick, it was our anniversary, spouse asked me after he put a heating pad on my afflicted area) 

I can't think of anything more loving and meaningful than your now-spouse proposing while nursing you. I'm serious.

I'll never ever understand why fundies think they are just the most precious snowflakes. Over the top everything. Elaborate courtships. Elaborate engagements. Elaborate baby announcements and gender reveals. Reminds me of that line in Steel Magnolias- ""How precious is this wedding going to get, I ask you?" Ugh. ?

It didn't really get big until Evan's Courthip proposal. The Duggars are pretty laxxed with these things except for gender reveals, but the bates are just out of control, It's destination everything. Which kid do you think will have there destination whatever out of the country?

I couldn’t imagine saying yes to a marriage proposal and not kissing. It’s one of those perfect kissing moments, I assume as much I have never been asked to marry anyone. I also wouldn’t want my whole family there. It would ruin everything.

As much as I loathe Nathan I actually think he looks nice in the suit. It's the most formal thing I've ever seen him wear. I don't think it matters that he's not thin--nothing wrong with people showing off their chunkier figures in the clothes they like. 

I'm all for body positivity. I'm not a skinny thing by any stretch.

 

I just had to throw that comment out there because of how cruel his comments about appearance of his sisters - especially the Michaela and Tori comments. If one of them had worn something that did not flatter their body shape, he would have thrown a fit. I was prepared to comment how bad he looked no matter how he did end up looking.

I tend to prefer “fuller” figured men. So if my husband was shaped like him, I would have zero issues with attraction. My husband has a little belly. And of course I find him attractive. But no one looks good from behind when they are kneeling. It’s a butt shot for fucks sake. I would never include the butt shot in my proposal photos. The rest of the photos are a million times better.

I remember him yelling at Tori about her hair but what did he say about Michael??

I will also go all Nathan and agree, that suit is not his best look.   

 

As my mother used to say, "it never hurts to go up a size."

My husband got a pair of pants that were snug on his behind and I couldn’t stop staring. Sometimes it’s good to be a bit snug ;)

ETA: my husband is normally stuck in his 90s grunge jeans that are too big on him. Sigh...

To me the suit looks fine, but i will admit i am not the most fashionable person. I also found the ring really pretty and then read that aparently is very out of fashion lol. They dont have pretty ideologies though and that is the most important thing here. 

I dont think there is something wrong with saying he has put on weight when it is clearly a fact. A few of his sibligs have put on weight too as they age. It may be genetic? or just poor diet.

Yes and in addition I now have edema from BP medicine *sigh*. 

But I agree, never post a butt shot on SM and think it was okay.

It seems to me a professional photographer would see that in the camera lens and say "Um, let's try for a side shot here folks".

FINALLY. Honestly I was waiting for ring pics as much as them to finally be engaged....and I hate her ring lol but if she loves it good for her! I also hate his outfit - suit isn't bad, i'm not against boots, but that particular combo is horrendous. Proposal itself is super cute, but that's obvious since the sisters decorated it.

Looks like there were fireworks too. Bates Family IG just posted some videos in their stories.

Actually Tori's courtposal was pretty "big", all her family + Kelton involved in the setup. And before that, Nathan's first courtposal was such a big deal Ashley thought he was actually proposing lol. Engagements being a big set up, I get, fine. But courtship, meh. It sounds like Nathan kept at least it low-key asking Esther to be his gf, and then went big on the proposal.

I could see making *an* announcement for pregnancy or even gender reveal (even though I hate gender reveals....) but those are definitely blown wayyyyy out of proportion. Then again for a fundie woman, what else is there for her to be excited about? 

Is it just me, or does anyone else forsee this being a Carlin-esque ultra mega wedding? I'm between that, or something relatively smaller but quicker to plan...

You can always tell by their nails if they knew the proposal was coming. She knew. She has a little heart only on the ring finger.

This looks like white-out on her nails. Her ring is pretty though.

I have to say something positive. I love her dress. Seriously I would consider buying the same dress. It's a great color. It looks great on her.

He looks fine to me.  And as one of the Bates brothers NOT protesting the election with T***p, he has gone up a little in my opinion.

Esther is also the oldest between Katie, Esther, and Tiffany. She's turning 24 in the fall.

      LOL, I read the Bible an awful lot for someone who's a hard-materialist atheist. But, then, I was raised culturally Christian, & US culture is so deeply steeped in Christianity, it's difficult to escape it.
      I like the Bible websites, tending to like the gateway one better than the hub one, for usability reasons. I really like that they have all the versions, all the different books, & all the commentaries. I did buy a Bible, in college lol, a big fat scholastic bible with all the books & a ton of footnotes. I started an atrocity project with it long ago & it's full of post-its.
      I've definitely developed a preference in versions, liking the NIV best so far, it's marvelously clear & the least disappointing when I dig into the depths. The KJVs are muddled & difficult to understand. Recently I've gotten to thinking that's why all these my-own-private-patriarchal-cult & grifters & et al like the KJVs so much, cuz they're a more obscure version that requires more 'explaining', is more open to interpretation. In addition to the obvious historical reasons why, like feeling all connected to the Pilgrim eras, & sounding all Shakespearean.
      I mostly end up reading the Bible as a fact-checking exercise, wondering what the verses & chapters say, the verses that people will have in their bios or social media postings. Tho' I do a fair amount of wondering why people think a thing that ostensibly has Biblical roots, digging around that.
      Fwiw.

      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.
