I've heard that the last shows absence of confidence and/or condition. For example: "Would you marry me if I were a billionaire?" is better. However before, the conventional question is "Will you marry me?" If you ask "would you marry me", some world can think there's a problem and also ask "if what?"

Is that right?

Thanks!

"Would you marry me?" sounds a bit... sloppy. And, yes it does sound prefer a hypothetical question. However, as via anypoint, it counts on the context. If the male asks her the question while kneeling dvery own, then it's obvious that he is proposing to her.

You are watching: Would you marry me or will you marry me

"Will you marry me?" is absolutely the standard means of saying it and there's no doubt in what it means. Especially if the question is predelivered by the recipient's complete name.


The second question is what you want to make sure you know the answer to before you buy the ring. The first question is what you ask when you obtain down on one knee and also have actually the ring in your hand also.


'Would you marry me?' is saying even more 'is tbelow a possibility that you and also me would certainly ever before be married' while 'Will you marry me?' is straight asking the perkid if they desire to marry you. The former is usually brought up via some additional problem as it's in the theoretical, while the latter is the question you ask as soon as you propose.


You're correct. Both "will" and also "would" have assorted uses. For "will", one of them is for requests/orders/provides. We can additionally use "would" for the same reason, but "would" is not as solid. For example, "Will you be quiet" and also "Would you be quiet, please", asking the exact same question but "would" is supplied frequently for even more polite researches. Another reason to usage "will" is in confidence of a existing or future occasion as you declared. At the end of the day both means have the right to be used yet using "will" is better, safer, and shows even more confidence.

Yes. It's appropriate.'Would' is a verb supplied for if indicating the consequence of an imagined occasion or case.

Would you marry me? (if)....(particular imagined situation)

In this case, would mostly expresses a desire or inclicountry, a wish and it's a opportunity. It's also hopeful (in some cases).

'Will' is a verb offered for expushing the future tense and also inevitable occasions. There's no opportunity in this situation.

When you ask "Will you marry me?", the question is particular. A direct question with indication of no 'what if' opportunity.
