Marriage is Forever - Or just until you say something I don't like.
Okay I'll admit as far as the Titel goes "wrong" wasn't the first word that came to mind. But I decided to avoid swearing in my first, maybe only soapbox so that's how I will be describing Lucas - as wrong.
I am a Leyton fan, occasionally a Jeyton fan, depending on my anger for Lucas from episode to episode. But this soapbox isn't about how great Leyton were/are. It is about the one scene/event in One baum hügel - when Lucas walked out on Peyton after she sagte "someday" to his proposal.
For a start Du need to really think deeply about what Lucas was asking of Peyton, and himself, Von asking her to marry him. Marriage, as I understand it is supposed to be something special and ETERNAL. When Du ask someone to marry Du - Du are saying that Du want to be with them for the rest of your life, through EVERYTHING. The good and the BAD. What's Mehr Du are essentially stating Du believe that as a couple the two of Du can make it through anything, and that no matter the disagreements oder problems the two of Du might have, that Du can and will, ALWAYS work it out and find a way to stay together.
Du see the problem. Lucas told Peyton - Von asking her to marry him - that he was ready to face anything together and that no matter what problems they might have he was willing to do whatever it took to work them out, because that is what marriage is about. So when Peyton says that she's not ready, that she feels THEY aren't ready for marriage and that she wants them to wait a Jahr before they get married Lucas should have at the very least agreed to try.
But he didn't. With no warning at all he just walked out on her and didn't try and speak to her again for two years. If he wasn't ready to face problems they might have in their present relationship - Peyton wanting to wait a Jahr - how on earth did he believe that he was ready to commit the rest of his life to Peyton facing all of their future problems together.
If Du feel Du are far enough into a relationship to propose Du should be far enough into the relationship to except "no" as an answer and still stay together. Only her answer wasn't even "no" it was "someday" - she was only 19 and she wanted one Jahr - and Lucas left. To me this means which ever way Du look at it, Lucas is in the wrong. Because either A) he left because the relationship wasn't strong enough to survive a "no" for example he realised he didn't Liebe Peyton as much as he thought he did - which means he shouldn't have proposed in the first place oder B) his pride was hurt and he wasn't mature enough to cope with the answer he didn't want - which means he certainly wasn't ready for something as serious as marriage.
He was really cruel and immature to walk out on Peyton like that and he was completely in the wrong. It annoys me that other characters in "One baum Hill" (Haley) defend Lucas and try to make it sound as if Peyton was the one who broke Lucas's herz when that just isn't true. He broke it himself.
Lucas + Peyton "True Love Always"
