    Long story short: Will you marry me ?

    Much though I'd love to go in to the gory details and seek some real advice from you motley lot, on reflection I'll give you the short version.

    Through a series of unfortunate events, someone at ClientCo has asked me to marry them. If I decline, it will be impossible to continue to work together, and she has the influence to have my contract terminated. But I don't want to accept. I've shot myself in the foot here by leading her on a bit. But I haven't even pecked her on the cheek, nevermind shagged her. So it's worrying she would ask without really knowing me very well. The moment to laugh it off "ha ha good one, yeah, right" has passed, or more accurately, I watched the moment slowly sail past me and failed to jump aboard.

    I'm going to have to find a new role, and sharpish, which is going to be very very inconvenient. Or I'll have to concoct a whole "it's not you it's me" load of tulip. But I don't think I can emerge from this unscathed. Which should teach me a lesson.

    OK, flamethrowers at the ready... and go

          Just force her into unconsenting acts of a deviant sexual nature with animals, I've never been pursued with requests of marriage by any "victim"

              Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the abject worship of the state.

              No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent.

                She sounds insane.

                I am seriously going to need more details. Mainly - how did she propose??

                  The best answer depends to a large extent on whether you are married already.

                    If she asks again then you can always counter with, "Oh, you were serious?"
