Can a woman propose to a man? Simple answer: Yes, this is a perfectly normal thing to do. With the rise of equal opportunities (Let’s face it, women and men are more or less equal now in society’s view), there really isn’t any reason why a woman shouldn’t propose to a man if she felt she wanted to. If you feel like you love your boyfriend enough to make him your fiancée and eventually your husband, then why not tell him this?
Why Woman Proposing Isn’t A Bad Thing
Proposing to a man isn’t a bad thing. I know a lot of girls have the image of their boyfriends one day proposing to them on one knee and it being the best day of their life (So far), but it doesn’t always have to be like this. It can actually be empowering you proposing to him, he’s the man you want to spend the rest of your life with, and you’re going to make it happen.
While growing up, girls are fed the idea of the guy asking them out and the guy proposing. They’re taught equal opportunities, but somehow it’s still the guy’s job. It’s seen as a romantic thing to do, and that’s the way it should be.
But wait, isn’t it also romantic if a guy proposes to a man? I’m sure they have romantic intentions as well, they’re not just doing it for the sake of it are they…
I know you’ve been taught that a guy should propose to you, but if you want to propose to him, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you asking for his hand in marriage.
What About Tradition, Is It OK To Propose To A Man Now?
Tradition? Think about it, tradition was what was holding women back in the first place. “A woman’s place is in the kitchen” and “Women should stay at home and look after the house while the man goes out and works” are also ‘traditional’ views. And what did those views ever do to empower women? This is simply bad relationship advice.
At the end of the day, guys and girls are equal. There are a lot more women asking men out, yet a lot of girls think it’s still the job of the man to put a ring on their finger first. You may feel it’s a nice gesture for the man to make, but if you really want to marry him and he hasn’t asked yet for whatever reason, then why not ask him?
This is of course different if there’s a real reason he hasn’t proposed to you yet (E.G. If you know he doesn’t want to get married or he’s not ready to get married yet), but if your relationship’s going well and you think it’s time to take the next step, it could be worth giving it a shot. Yes I know tradition says he should propose to you, but tradition also says he’s the ruler of the house. And I bet that’s not the case now, is it. 🙂
Should Women Propose To Men Conclusion
You probably know already, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a guy asking for a woman’s hand in marriage. Yes it can be nice and romantic if he pops the question, but it’s also nice and romantic if she pops the question too.
I know some women wouldn’t be willing to do this, and no one is forcing them to do so. You could always let your boyfriend know you want to get married, and hopefully he’ll take the hint and pop the question. My point however, is that this isn’t the only way. You could always take matters into your own hand and just do what needs to be done. That’d be a real story to tell the grandchildren, they can tease granddad for not asking you to marry him first. 🙂
