Life with a Law Student: On Framing a Question

Summer vacation’s over and school starts again this week for Mr. Cinical! So it’s back to having legal jargon peppering our daily conversation.

Mr. Cinical: We were taught how to question a witness in the Trial Advocacy class today. Apparently, if you are the prosecuter, your job is to present facts, so your questions should be an invitation for the witness to tell his story. The defense, on the other hand should be asking leading questions with “yes/no” answers.

Me: So, assuming if you had gone to law school before you married me, how would you have frame the proposal?

Mr. Cinical: Instead of asking “will you marry me?” and risking potential rejection, I will ask “So, who do you intend to marry?”
