Who Proposed at the White House?

A U.S. Marine makes history

Matthew Phelps asked his partner Ben Schock to marry him. But the big news isn’t that the couple is tying the knot – but that he made the proposal in the White House. Phelps, a U.S. Marine, had this to say on Facebook where he posted a photo (below) of the big moment:

“Such a special night surrounded by wonderful people in an amazing place, and the best is still yet to come … Thanks for all the wonderful greetings and messages, and thanks to Barack Obama and Michelle Obama for lending us your home for the occasion!”
