U.S. Marine Makes First Ever Same-Sex Marriage Proposal in the White House

That's Hot!

On Saturday night, a Marine became the first to propose to his same-sex partner at the heart of American politics: inside the White House. U.S. Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps popped the question to his partner Ben Schock white they toured the White House last weekend. It’s thought to be the first same-sex couple proposal at the presidential property, and certainly the first by an active member of the military.

“It wasn’t something we were trying to do,” Phelps told the Washington Post on Monday. “I just wanted to make it a special night for Ben.” The engagement comes 15 months after the military’s longstanding “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy ended, of which Phelps has spoken publicly about.
