    Would you marry a pillow?

    Dear friends...

    Will you marry me or I have to marry a pillow*?

    or

    Will you marry me or do I have to marry a pillow? (I guess this is the one)

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
