Undoubtedly, all of us have many feelings entwined with the ring.

But, just imagine that you misplace this ring one day. Even after searching for hours, you couldn’t find it. Did your heart just skip a beat? Of course, anyone will scream after realizing that one of the most valued ornaments from the ring finger is missing. Unfortunately,¬†Michele Arias and Doug Cotty had to face the ordeal of the missing engagement ring just after they got engaged on a vacation. Will they ever be able to find it?

The Couple

Michele Arias and Doug Cotty were the residents of Charlotte. They were longtime friends who knew that their friendship was a little more than just being “the friends”. Neither of them realized when just talking to each other took to all night conversations, and when teasing each other turned to flirting with each other. As they say, it just happens.

Much In Love

Their love for each other grew stronger day by day. They would hang out together, go out for coffee dates and what not. All they wanted was to stay together. While it was a little easy when in college, but as they got their jobs, taking out time for their partners got extremely difficult. And then this happens.

Hectic Schedules

As life got serious, managing work and personal life too got difficult. With a job demanding long hours of work, Michele and Doug got very little time for themselves. And as a majority of the couple feel at a time, they too felt as if the charm of their relationship has gone. But, Doug knew that this was not something he wanted to give up.

A Holiday

Doug planned a vacation for him and Michele. He knew that they wanted some time to themselves. But other than this, he had some special plans as well. He wanted to make his commitment to Michele for a lifetime. Doug was all set to surprise the love of his life, something Michele did not expect at all.

Costa Rican Vacation

Beach is the best escape anyone can have and it turns out to be even better when such a gateway is in a country no other than Costa Rica. The country is known for its scenic beaches and backwaters. And this was the destination Doug chose to propose to Michele. Unfortunately, things did not go well.

Best Times

Michele and Doug had the best times of their life on this holiday. They enjoyed water sports, some cozy time and had lots of fun dancing and partying. Michele was already very happy. Little did she know that the biggest surprise was yet to come.
