Most of us swoon, and cheer when we see a man get down on one knee in public to propose to the love of his life.
But for one couple in Iran, their romantic moment was ruined after they were arrested for a public display of affection.
What is considered the perfect moment went down at a shopping mall, in Tehran.
The footage, which captures the moment at which a young man places a ring on the finger of his girlfriend at a shopping mall in Arak, Tehran, Iran, was condemned by Iranian authorities as it contradicted the country’s Islamic doctrines.
The couple, who were later arrested by police for breaking the country’s laws on public decency, have since been released on bail.
During the viral clip, the unnamed man stands inside a ring of flower petals shaped like a heart as his girlfriend stares at him and gasps with excitement.
The Iranian woman, who is stood next to red and white balloons laid out on the ground, then says ‘yes’ to the marriage proposal as her ecstatic boyfriend slips the ring onto her finger.
The happy couple then embrace each other as excited spectators cheer and clap at their romantic union.
However soon after the video was posted online and went viral, the couple were taken in by the police for breaking Iran’s strict Islamic code.
Arak deputy police chief Mostafa Norouzi later told the Shahrvand daily that the young couple’s ‘offense is very clear and there is no need for explanation’.
He added that it was unacceptable for the couple ‘to do whatever is common in other places of the world and disregard mores, culture and religion’.
