1. When my career is stable, I'll ask for her hands in marriage at once. I give you my word.

2. When I have a stable career, I'll propose to her right away. I promise you.

- Are these sentences natural to say?

Thanks a lot to Teachers,

Hi,
1. When my career is stable, I'll ask for her hand hands in marriage at once. I give you my word.
2. When I have a stable career, I'll propose to her right away. I promise you.

- Are these sentences natural to say? They are both correct, but #1 sounds quite formal and old-fashioned.

"At once" and "right away" are not natural since you wouldn't know the exact moment when your career becomes stable.

"I promise when I have a stable career, I'll ask for her hand in marrage" is more natural.
