Asking someone to spend the rest of their life with you is a pretty big deal, let alone planning how you're going to get down on one knee.
So, spare a moment to think of Channing Tatum who recently revealed his proposal fail to wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
In an interview with BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw yesterday, the Logan Lucky star revealed his proposal ended in tears, and not in a good way.
'When I proposed to my wife I did something pretty cruel because I thought she was on to me. I basically told her I never wanted to get married to try to throw her off,' the 37-year-old actor recalled.
'I told her, "I don't believe in the institution of marriage and I don't think I ever want to get married". She basically broke down crying,' he added. 'I thought, "This is not going well at all' so I had to propose to her sooner rather than later."
I mean, joking that you don't believe in marriage to the woman you want to marry isn't exactly the way to go about a proposal.
I basically told her I never wanted to get married
In 2008, People reported Channing asked Jenna to marry him in Maui, Hawaii in front of close friends, who were invited under the radar to surprise her.
Fortunately, the actor - who met his wife on the set of the 2006 dance film Step Up and is father to four-year-old Everly - appears to have learned his lesson when it comes to romantic gestures and helped a radio caller surprise his girlfriend over the phone.
Channing Tatum- ever the charmer.
