Marriage Proposals Done By Women.
Times have changed and so have traditions and trends. The new and emerging ways of handling issues is what many people are opting for. New trends are on the verge of doing away with the traditions. The new standards and trends being set in the society is what many people are opting for. People are creating their own trends that they don’t expect to be questioned. Many people are going against the norms set by the society. Such things such as marriages and relationships have set standards on how they should be handled.
In the past, men were expected to initiate marriages proposals. Heads of families and homes are societally meant to be men. Women were never expected to be at the forefront of family decisions. Men are still being considered to be superior than women even to this date. Women are slowly being empowered to take up roles that were initially meant for men. The most popular trend that is cropping up is the trend of women proposing to marriages to men. Men are finding it normal for women to propose to them for marriages. Movements such as feminism and women being empowered has propelled women into such bold acts. It is thus not a new phenomenon to see or hear of a woman proposing to a man.
It is important to note however that the new trends come with new rules and methodology. Proposing to a man by a woman is not done in the same manner in which men propose to women. Women have adapted new methods to use when proposing to men which they consider modern. Women are mandated to ask for the hand of marriage of the man from the man’s mother. After asking for parents’ consent, a woman is also expected to find a good ring to propose with. Women can choose not to go conventional like men do by purchasing rings. Gifting men tokens such as a pair of cufflinks or a wrist watch during the proposal can replace the conventional buying of rings. Desperation should not be the sole reason as to why a woman proposes to a man, instead, it should be the desire to spend the rest of her life with the man that should be the driving force. Genuine intentions for proposing makes it easier to complete the process of proposing. Women do not necessarily need to follow the conventional norm of going down on their knee when proposing to a man. This will make the process look too obvious and monotonous. There is need to come up with a new and unique style of bringing forth one’s feelings when proposing to a man.
