‘Till Debt Do Us Part': A Law School Graduation Proposal You’ve Got To See

Like a recent law grad could afford this.

What’s the most exciting stunt you could pull off before receiving your law school diploma? If you guessed “a backflip,” someone’s been there, and done that. This 2013 grad from Baylor Law has got you beat. If your next best guess was “propose to your girlfriend in front of hundreds of people,” then nice job, you win.

When this soon-to-be graduate found out his longtime girlfriend, who graduated from law school last year, would be participating in his hooding ceremony, he knew he had to step up his game. He wanted his girlfriend to have and to hold, from that day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until debt do them part.

Keep reading to see the video that’s quickly making the rounds online….

The Huffington Post says, “A love-struck law school student just raised the bar for graduation ceremonies.” This video was put up online yesterday from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law:

We agree with the announcer: “Wow.” Congrats and best wishes to Nicholas Siewert and Abril Valdes on their engagement. It’s wonderful to have someone to commiserate with over extreme law school debt.

We sincerely hope you both get full-time jobs as attorneys soon. Wedding planning is expensive!
