How to say: Will You Marry Me in Cantonese (2)

Another verb that means “marry” in Cantonese is 娶。 It really means “(a man) marry (a woman)”.
So for a girl to ask a man “Will you marry me?”, she should say
nei5 jyun6 ji3 ceoi2 ngo5 maa3
你願意娶我嗎?” (colloquial)
or
nei5 jyun6 m4 jyun6ji3 tung4 ngo5 git3fan1 aa3
你愿唔願意同我結婚啊。”(Are you willing to marry me? )

If you would be happy for a week take a wife; if you would be happy for a month kill a pig; but if you would be happy all your life plant a garden (Proverb)

So how do you say take a wife in Cantonese?
ceoi2 lou5po4
老婆 Marry (one’s) wife

Marry an 18-year-old as his wife:
ceoi2 zo2 go3 sap6baat3 seoi3 ge3 zou6 lou5po4
娶咗個十八歲嘅做老婆。
