Rejecting a Marriage Proposal

Dearest [name],

Words can’t describe how happy I am that you would want to marry me. I am aware it is a new chapter in life. However, I feel like I am not yet ready for that stage. Thus, I’m going to have to respectfully reject your proposal. Marriage is something that can’t be taken for granted. For me, agreeing to marry someone is such a life-changing decision.

This is no knock on who you are though. I think you are an amazing person. This is just not the right time for me to get married. I hope nothing changes between us. Patience is needed for this situation as I’m confident we will get married when the time is right. Unfortunately, that time is not yet now.

Sincerely yours,

Dear [name],

I will get straight to the point. I love you more than anything. I am not ashamed to admit that to anybody. When I feel down, I immediately feel great when I look at you.

There is no better time than to ask you this important question: Will you marry me? I can’t imagine spending the rest of my life with anybody else. You define what life is to me. Nothing makes me happier than being beside you. Hence, I will be extremely satisfied when you walk down the aisle with me.

Sincerely yours,
