US2007078663A – Method and instrument for proposing marriage to an individual

Unfortunately, this patent application was ultimately rejected by the USPTO due to non-response to an office action, but it still makes the list for being arguably the most romantic patent application ever! Rather than stereotypical proposals, such as the “diamond in champagne” or “message in the sky” method, patent attorney, Ryan Thomas Grace decided to submit a patent application in 2003 which also acted as his marriage proposal.
