For a while, Pawn Stars fans assumed Rick had finally found his happily ever after and so looked like the case for Deanna. However, their separation happened almost without anyone’s notice.

Deanna and Rick met in 2011 at the Aureole restaurant. The same year, they began dating and Rick proposed to her a year later, on February 14, 2012. The proposal took place at the same restaurant, where they had first met each other. The North Carolina citizen said he took Deanna to the very exact spot he had first laid eyes on her and told her, “girl, I’m marrying you.” He said it wasn’t even a question as he told,
“I didn’t really ask her, I told her ‘Girl, I’m marrying you,’ and then I gave her the ring,”
After proposing to Burditt, he said to People, “I’m the happiest guy alive.” He said he was living the dream.
In contrast to people’s belief that Burditt’s engagement ring came from the famous Gold & Silver Pawnshop, Rick did not get the ring out of his stock room.

However, when the Pawnography star really got his hand dirty he said he had no idea there was so much involved.
Also, when it came to post-nuptials travels, Rick said his third wife wasn’t that active in the decision-making.
