This might not be the best way to begin an engagement...

A dragon row boat capsized Sept. 20 after a man proposed to his girlfriend, tossing 19 people into New York City's East River. They all had to be rescued by emergency services. Thankfully, everyone's fine.

As The Gothamist writes:

Officials say the boat was capsized by a succession of wakes from larger vessels passing nearby, not from the emotional turbulence that inevitably batters every couple who commits to spending their entire lives together in this f*cked up world, so there's no need to see this as a metaphor for their impending nuptials or the institution of marriage in general. But even if it is A Sign, everybody on board survived, so the takeaway is obviously that when you prepare for life's vicissitudes and wear a life preserver everything will be just fine!



Even without the surprise swimming, that can't have been too romantic of a proposal. I mean, those boats are crammed full of people trying to row their little hearts out. So, it's not like you could find privacy or even a moment's peace to look each other in the eyes, contemplating your future.

Those people look pretty cold after their rescue.





But she said yes! So, the day wasn't ruined for at least two of those people.

Get rekt, dude. This is what a doomed-from-the-start marriage looks like. The YouTube description provides further context about this disastrous event as well:

While the wedding ceremony was under way, the bride and groom noticed a surprise guest. The groom’s secret girlfriend invited herself to the wedding but her presence wasn’t the only shocker. It was actually her attire that turned heads. She actually arrived at the ceremony wearing a wedding dress identical to the one the bride wore. Needless to say, the wedding ceremony – which was supposed to be a romantic occasion – took an abrupt nosedive and a knockdown, drag-out fight ensued.
