Marriage Proposals Done By Women.
The changing times has seen to the change of traditions and trends. People are embracing new ways of doing things. Traditions and norms are being discarded as new ones are being adopted. Many people are seeking to embrace the new trends and standards being set in the society. People are creating their own trends that they don’t expect to be questioned. The norms of the society are being defied by many people. There are standards set 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. The notion has been carried to latter days. Masculine roles are being adopted by women in the current society. The most popular trend that is cropping up is the trend of women proposing to marriages to men. This trend is slowly becoming an accepted norm in the society. Women empowerment and movements such as feminism has led women into believing that they can take up such roles. It is thus not a new phenomenon to see or hear of a woman proposing to a man.
New trends tend to bring about new strategies and methods of doing things. When a woman is proposing to a man, she uses new strategies to do so and not the same that men use to propose to women. Women have adapted new methods to use when proposing to men which they consider 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. Getting a perfect ring for the proposal is very vital. The engagement symbol does not have to be a ring as conventional men are used to doing. Women opt for things such as wrist watches, or a pair of shirt cufflinks to use for proposal. 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. There is another conventional method of proposing that does not have to be followed by ladies when proposing, going down on one knee. 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.
