How Women Propose to Men.
Trends, norms and traditions have changed with the changing times. New methods of doing things are emerging and people are embracing them. 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. Societal norms are being defied. There are set standards on how to handle relationships and marriages.
Marriage proposals were things that were mandated to be done by men. The reasons as to why men are the heads of the home and families is because of the societal expectations. 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. Women proposing to men for marriages is a set rule that is being followed and accepted by many. This is due to the empowerment of women and the rise of movements such as feminism. 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. 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. 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. This makes it easier to get the right words to speak when popping out the proposal. Women are not obliged to go down on one knee when proposing to a man as is conventionally done by men. A woman using the conventional method may appear 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.
