“You’ve been together with your boyfriend for 6 years. Hasn’t he POPPED THE QUESTION yet?”

Maybe the context helps you guess the meaning of POP THE QUESTION. It’s when the boyfriend gets down on one knee, presents a ring that cost many months’ salary and asks his girlfriend whether she will marry him. In other words, it’s when he proposes.

I admit, I’ve used the traditional example but in today’s world, and in many countries around the world, it can apply to anyone who proposes to their partner, irrespective of gender.

Over to you:

Is POPPING THE QUESTION usual where you live? And how/where is it done?
