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
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 娶老婆 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。

Cantonese learners in San Francisco Bay Area are lucky to have Singtao Chinese Radio, which is also available online at http://ChineseRadio.com. They have both Cantonese and Mandarin programs.

In Dublin/Pleasanton/San Ramon (tri Valley) area, it is hard to get the programs on my radio, so it is very convenient to listen to it online.
