At the gates of his castle the Marble stands tall,
New English by birth, but a tiger to all.
The name Marble Tiger speaks to two different elements. Marble, because I had a surprise marriage proposal on the grounds of the Marble House in Newport, Rhode Island. My then boyfriend now husband and I were taking a belated Valentine’s Day trip up to Newport for the weekend. He had been acting very strange and I actually thought he was going to break up with me. He wanted to go on a tour of the Marble House which was out of character as well. He is not that kind of guy usually but I thought great. So we went and at the end of the tour, the guide advised that for those of us that wanted to brave the frigid temperatures there is a beautiful garden along the ocean cliffs that we could go enjoy. He said he wanted to go out there. Another, strange but okay scenario. We go out to the ocean cliff by the garden and he proceeds to pull out a ring and ask me to marry him. I was in total shock but did manage to say yes and the rest is history as they say.
Now tiger is just a pure love of tigers and why not a Marble Tiger…
