    Would you marry a pillow?

    Dear friends...

    is it...

    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)


    *that's no joke: Man marries pillow

    Many thanks

    Which brings up the story of the man who proposed to a feather pillow. He was turned down.

    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.
