Proposing at a funeral is weird, tacky, and insensitive.

It was one wedding and a funeral.
A South African pastor is being excoriated online after filming himself proposing to a grieving woman in the middle of her father’s funeral — mere feet from the deceased’s coffin. Video of the proposal has over 278,000 views as critics accuse the man of making the somber occasion about himself.
“Proposing [to] the deceased’s daughter right at the funeral. Wiping the tears there and there,” reads the caption to the clip, which was uploaded a week ago by the fiancé — who goes by @M.Mojela on TikTok.
According to CEN, the pastor, who was presiding over the service, had asked for the woman’s hand in order to help heal her broken heart.
