New Years Day 2016

Greg and Connie tell the Pattersons about their recent wedding. Since she's the one who proposed, John and Elly get gobsmacked.

(Strip Number 4737, Original Publication Date, 2 January 1987)

Panel 1: After dinner, Connie says that she can no longer stand the suspense and tells John and Elly that she and Greg have big news.

Panel 2: Said big news is that last week, she and Greg got married; they didn't tell anyone, they just upped and got hitched.

Panel 3: Elly stammers as she asks what made them to decide to do so.

Panel 4: When Greg says "EASY! She proposed and I accepted," Elly and John are surprised.

Summary: This is because of this whole "the man is supposed to do that" thing they're used to. A woman isn't 'supposed' to be as 'forward' as this despite it not really mattering much.
