I can’t marry you.

A marriage proposal from the lady gets turned down by the man. Such is the outcome of the very scandalous relationship between Kristen DiMera and Brady Black. Brady hilariously called her a “jokester” as he dismissed her proposal. Not that she’s listening – Kristen is determined to turn his no into a yes.

It’s always awkward when a marriage proposal goes wrong. When Nathan Horton asked Melanie Jonas to marry him on March 8, 2011, he too was turned down. Could it have been the venue he chose? After all, what girl wants to be asked one of the most important questions of her life while lying in a hospital bedroom?

Melanie and Nathan felt comfortable acknowledging their feelings after being betrayed by Philip Kiriakis and Chloe Lane. Not wanting to waste any more time, Nathan’s desperate proposal started with Daniel Jonas, Melanie’s father. The good doctor wanted his potential fiancée’s father’s blessing. But that’s when the rejection started – Daniel didn’t think it was a good idea. Melanie had just had a miscarriage and had yet to make a decision about divorcing her husband Philip Kiriakis. Even Melanie’s mother cautioned her about making any major life decisions, urging her to “do what was best for her.”
