On Thursday, a Ben Carson staffer proposed to his now fiancée at a rally in Fort Wayne, Indiana, under the gentle gaze of Carson himself.

While the man, dressed in a pink shirt and pink-er tie, dropped to one knee, Carson undoubtedly whispered well-wishes before falling into a peaceful upright nap.

Some questions: How did this future husband invite his future wife onstage without her saying, “Hell no?” Why did she bend over and put her head below his chin? Will they get married even when Carson doesn’t win? Did the crowd scream? Does anyone have audio of the crowd?

Anyway, mazel to them. Just kidding, they are definitely not Jewish.
