As you may have noticed, it is not without a good measure of frequency that declarations are made about marriage after some sort of research or study or survey takes place. You know, like, say, the one we talked about recently that announced that couples who had bigger weddings tend to have happy marriages and that these days, a third of marriages begin with a hookup.

Well, another one came out, recently—from Emory University—and a data scientist went ahead and did us all a favor and boiled all of the findings down into graphs, which are very easy to read, and, if you follow them, basically give you the keys to entering into a bullet-proof marriage.

Video: To Promote New Sitcom ‘Marry Me,’ NBC Helps Real-Life Dude Propose to Real-Life Girlfriend With Adorable Surprise Flash Mob 

You know, you’d think with as many of these things as I see, the tears would be at least a little hesitant when a proposal video starts rolling, but that most often just isn’t the case—and it definitely isn’t with this one.

To promote their new sitcom, Marry Me (starring Casey Wilson who is always funny and Ken Marino who I can’t not think of as Guy Young from Eastbound & Down), NBC helped a real-life dude propose to his real-life girlfriend in quite the elaborate show of lip synching and flash mobbing, surprise guests and professional dancers and ballerinas and football players and a whole host of other characters that you’ll miss if you blink, but you’ll have to blink to clear out the tears.

It’s a sweet one. Take a look:

The show premiers on Tuesday, October 14th. No word on when Bret and Jovan’s wedding will do the same.
