The bride's post read: "Ok can I get some advice ladies? 9 months ago my (what I thought was) fiancé asked me to marry him. He didn't have a ring so I assumed it was a spur of the moment decision, but I am a chill woman I understood the ring will come later and all that matters is we have each other.

"I have been planning my dream wedding for 7 months now. When I told him I was going dress shopping he looked at me like I had 5 heads.

"Long story short he claims he never proposed to me! He said 'why would I propose to a woman I'm not even dating?" I am thinking of tricking him into coming to our wedding and just seeing what happened.

"Not too sure what else I can do," she finished.

One user shared many of our thoughts when they commented, "I have so many questions. No wait. Just one - [what]?"

Another said, "Every time the spouse and I get into an argument I’m going to read this post and remember that our relationship is FANTASTIC."

Someone else wrote that they didn't think it was that "unusual".

"Is it weird that this situation doesn’t seem unusual to me?

"I’ve had friends in their 30’s that have thought that they were exclusive with someone for months, including getting f***ed up blackout drunk and one 'proposing' to the other in the 'spur of the moment.'

"It usually results in either a) them actually getting married, usually when a pregnancy happens a few weeks later or someone decides to give in or 2) one of them calling the other crazy, them fighting about it publicly, and then dragging out a weird teenage relationship at 35 for way too long.

"These are the people you meet at/work with at dive bars at 2pm on a Monday," they said.

One user joked, "Man - why can’t any of my Facebook friends be this nuts. I need entertainment damnit."

Another asked, "Did he just say something nice and she's crazy and thought they were dating etc?"

To which someone responded that the woman could be trolling, "It’s gotta be that... like she grabbed him a snack while she was up and he said 'ugh marry me' or something and she ran with it.

"Either that or someone is a troll."

One user added, "It's got to be! Never mentioning anything related to the wedding for that long?

"Not realising you're even dating? Do these people never talk to each other?

"It's all totally false or I think it's all in her head. She's built some elaborate dream life and he doesn't even know he's part of it."

Another user joked, "If jumping to conclusions was an Olympic sport, this lady would be a medalist."

Others said they really wanted to hear the guy's side of the story, while some said that groom may be gaslighting the bride.

One thing's for sure: we are really going to need an update soon!
