WASHINGTON – Sarah Cooper got more than a degree when she crossed the stage at American University’s graduation ceremony on Saturday – she got a husband, too.

“I’ve got a question for you,” Miller said. “Will you marry me?”
The crowd went wild, and after a moment the loudspeaker confirmed what everyone could tell by looking at the kissing couple, “She said yes.”
