Get to know me meme: [2/5] Relationships → Frank and Claire Underwood
"You know what Francis said to me when he proposed? I remember his exact words. He said, ‘Claire, if all you want is happiness say no. I’m not gonna give you a couple of kids and count the days until retirement. I promise you freedom from that. I promise you you’ll never be bored.’ You know he was the only man - and there were a lot of others who proposed - but he was the only one who understood me. He didn’t put me on some pedestal. He knew that I didn’t want to be adored or coddled. So he took my hand and put a ring on it. Because he knew I’d say yes."
