Shane Bauer wove an engagement ring out of threads from his shirt, then met his girlfriend, Sarah Shourd, in an unlikely place for a marriage proposal: the exercise yard of the Iranian prison where the couple has been locked up for nearly a year.

The mothers of both young Americans said Monday that their children will get married whenever they are released. They were taken into custody and accused of spying for the U.S. when they went for a hike last July along the border between Iraq and Iran.
