How to Propose to a Man for Marriage.
Trends, norms and traditions have changed with the changing times. People are embracing new ways of doing things. 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. There are standards set 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 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. Women are slowly being empowered to take up roles that were initially meant for men. Women are taking up the role of proposing marriages to men. This trend is slowly becoming an accepted norm in the society. Movements such as feminism and women being empowered has propelled women into such bold acts. A woman proposing to a man no longer takes people by surprise.
It is important to note however that the new trends come with new rules and methodology. 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. 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. The engagement symbol does not have to be a ring as conventional men are used to doing. Tokens such as a pair of cufflinks or wrist watch can be used by women to propose marriage to their men. Rather than being directed by desperation to propose, a woman should propose when she is convinced about wanting to spend the rest of her life with the man. 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. Following the conventional procedures might look too obvious and monotonous for a woman. The uniqueness of proposing to a man is found in the way one uses new styles and strategies.
