Indiana Man Proposes To Two Sisters At The Same Time

They say true love is blind and knows no bounds. One man in Indiana is a testament to this fact in that he is willing to marry the love of his life and her younger sister at the same time. This thoughtful and enterprising young man says he is looking forward to setting up a new household together with his wife and her handicapped younger sister.

One man from Indiana is a true romantic. This amazing husband-to-be has clearly gone above and beyond to include his girlfriend’s special younger sister in his marriage proposal.

Will Seaton found out as soon as he started dating Ashley Schaus in 2010 that he needed to be aware that Ashley was extremely close to her younger sister. In fact, he was basically told on the first date that Ashley and her sister Hannah, who has Down syndrome and diabetes, were pretty much a “package deal.”

But Will was game as he knew this is the way things were meant to be. The couple notes that Hannah was invited to come along on most (but not all) of their dates, and had also developed a close bond with Will. They say it only seemed natural to them that she would be included in the ceremony, so why not include her in the proposal as well?

So when Seaton decided it was finally time to pop the big question, he naturally thought of a sweet, romantic way to include Hannah in the big moment as well.

When the proposal finally happened, Seaton got down on a knee in a field of flowers in their home of Santa Claus, Indiana (not a joke), and looked Hannah in the eye while he asked her if she would be his “best friend forever”, then turned to Ashley to ask her to marry him.

“It was the sweetest moment in my whole life watching Hannah be so happy and feeling so special,” Ashley commented in an interview with a local Indiana media outlet.

“And then he looked at me as I was trying to stop sobbing. I asked, ‘Am I next?’ Then he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.”

Of course, Seaton had carefully planned every aspect of the proposal, going so far as to give Hannah her own “engagement” ring, a family heirloom that had once been on the finger of the sisters’ grandmother.

It seems that Hannah was thrilled at Will’s sweet gesture and efforts to include her in his proposal, and commented excitedly, “He takes me fishing and makes funny jokes. He makes me laugh and takes care of me.”

Family sources say the wedding is scheduled for October, and Ashley says Hannah will definitely be a significant part of the wedding ceremony: “She’s more than just a bridesmaid, she’s practically one-third of the wedding.”

Of note, Hannah and Will are planning to exchange “best friend vows” and they will share a first dance to the song “Best Friend” by Harry Nilsson.
