Lesson Transcript

Olá, gente. Tudo bem? I am Paloma. Welcome to another Top Portuguese Words. Today’s topic is, Top 10 Marriage Proposal Lines.
Are you ready to get married in Portuguese? Let’s do it.
1. Você quer se casar comigo? "Will you marry me?"
This is the most common proposal line in Portuguese.
Você quer se casar comigo?
And the answer can be Sim! or Quero! Or Não / Não quero.
2. Você me daria a honra de ser a minha esposa? "Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?"
Você me daria a honra de ser a minha esposa? You can use esposa to mean wife but it’s also very common to say mulher or woman meaning wife in Portuguese as well.
Você me daria a honra de ser a minha mulher?
3. Esperei por você a minha vida inteira. "You are the one I've been waiting for my whole life. "
My whole life.
4. Quero ficar com você pra sempre. "I want to be with you forever. "
It’s funny because forever is para, (for) sempre, (ever), para sempre, forever.
5. Quero passar o resto da minha vida do seu lado. "I want to spend the rest of my live with you."
Do seu lado means on your side or next to you.
6. Você me completa. "You complete me."
In Portuguese, we say, a metade da laranja. The half of the orange. So if you are the other half of the orange, you are completing each other.
7. Você é tudo o que eu sempre sonhei pra mim. "You're everything I've always dreamed about."
All the sentences, they sound like songs.
8. Nós fomos feitos um para o outro. "We were made for each other."
9. Você me faz querer ser uma pessoa melhor. "You make me want to be a better person."
Remember that in Portuguese, usually the adjective comes at the end. So pessoa melhor and in English, it is a better person.
10. Antes de te conhecer eu não sabia o quanto a minha vida era vazia. "Before I met you, I never realized how empty my life was."
Antes de te conhecer eu não sabia o quanto a minha vida era vazia.
There are so many small words in there. Antes de te conhecer.
The end. That’s it for today. What proposal are you going to use with your Brazilian boyfriend or girlfriend? Let us know in the comments below and I hope to see you in our next video. Até mais! Tchau!
