How Women Propose to Men.

Times have changed and so have traditions and trends. New methods of doing things are emerging and people are embracing them. New trends are slowly replacing the old traditions. Many people are seeking to embrace the new trends and standards being set in the society. There are rules set by individuals who want to live in a free manner without being questioned. The norms of the society are being defied by many people. There are set standards on how to handle relationships and marriages.

In the past, men were expected to initiate marriages proposals. The men are also expected to be the heads of families and homes. Women were expected to take the back seat when it comes to decision making in families. Men are still being considered to be superior than women even to this date. Masculine roles are being adopted by women in the current society. Women are taking up the role of proposing marriages to men. Women proposing to men for marriages is a set rule that is being followed and accepted by many. Movements such as feminism and women being empowered has propelled women into such bold acts. People are not surprised when a woman proposes to a man.

It is important to note however that the new trends come with new rules and methodology. Women tend to shy away from the methods used by men to propose and thus come up with their own methods of proposing to the men. The process and methods used by women to propose to men are seen to be modern. Just like men ask for a woman’s hand in marriage from the female’s parents, preferably the male parent, so does women ask the female parents of the man for their son’s hand in marriage. After asking for parents’ consent, a woman is also expected to find a good ring to propose with. Women can go beyond purchasing rings in order to break the conventional trend by men of buying rings. Gifting men tokens such as a pair of cufflinks or a wrist watch during the proposal can replace the conventional buying of rings. A women is also expected to propose only when she is sure about that she wants to spend the rest of her life with the man she is proposing to and not out of desperation. Being genuine makes the process of proposing to a man less difficult. Women are not obliged to go down on one knee when proposing to a man as is conventionally done by men. This will make the process look too obvious and monotonous. Coming up with a new style when proposing to a man makes it more lively and unique.
