If Alexey Bykov puts half as much effort into his marriage as he did for his proposal, he may yet live happily ever after -- which is something to be said for a man who faked his own death before proposing.

She arrived to her boyfriend not kneeling on bended knee, but rather lying on the ground covered in fake blood.
