Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think few people would say getting engaged during a global pandemic is their ideal situation. Unfortunately, with so much uncertainty about when daily life will return to "normal," deciding when to pop the question is tricky. IMO, an engagement doesn't have to involve a beach, a photoshoot, and a message written in the sky to be considered a success. An at-home proposal is just as romantic as a public one (and has the benefit of being much more intimate). If you're in need of ideas for quarantine engagement Instagram captions, then I've got some suggestions that will make your socially-distanced celebration even sweeter.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced many couples to change their plans. Weddings have been postponed, engagement parties have been canceled, special occasions have been celebrated at home, and for some, proposals have been delayed. However, if you and your SO feel certain about your future together (and haven't yet driven each other up a wall in quarantine), then why wait? After all, most people would welcome a reason to celebrate right now. There's no wrong way to get engaged, and these clever IG captions for quarantine engagements totally deserve a double-tap.
