Marriage Proposal: who to say it?
“It is important to make a good start, especially when it is about marriage, a life-long commitment. How can you allow such important stage in your life started without a formal proposal?” This is what we have discussed in our previous article. Now, we are going to see who shall do the asking, him or her? At this important moment, what will be his or your choice?
If it takes time for him to propose, maybe I can say it first….?
Wait ! For a marriage proposal, it is important to stick to its “tradition”.
The tradition has been for a man to propose to a woman.
The man proposes to the woman while kneeling on one knee before her,
holding her hand and sincerely asking, “Will you marry me?”
Although this is considered as a gentle way, it may no longer common in the modern society.
In the survey conducted by I-PRIMO, a question was asked:
“Do you think the number of men who are not willing to make marriage proposal has increased?”
80% of female interviewees and 75.3% of male interviewees answered “Yes”.
We, first of all, try not to count on female interviewees’ answers.
Nearly 80% of the male interviewees think they cannot make marriage proposals.
Lacking of confidence on one’s financial situation and dating for too long, etc. are the reasons behind. Nevertheless, marriage shall happen when you believe you have found the right person.
Since two persons have decided to stay together anyway, no matter what reason of not giving a marriage proposal, it is just an excuse.
If it is hardly for a man to propose, why not let a woman propose to a man.
You are right. We are living in a gender equality society and there is no rule confining marriage proposals must be initiated by man.
However, I would still say a man shall propose to a woman.
This is because marriage / wedding itself is traditional.
He proposed. She accepted. Then, they become husband and wife with the blessings and recognition of both families.
I believed this tradition will not change and will continue as a mainstream in our society.
Just the same as a marriage proposal!!
A man gathers his courage to propose to a woman he loves is a beautiful and brave act.
Whoever gets the advantage, the one who propose or being proposed, is not a question at all.
Therefore, it is worth to give a second thought.
As both of you prepare to spend the rest of your life together, why skip the proposal?
If there is a special reason of not having one, I would suggest both of you shall review your love with each other.
woman shall be confident with herself in a relationship.
This is one of the elements that reflected your true beauty.
I am sure you will understand the true meaning of what I am saying one day.
You may ask, “if I insist to wait for proposal from my boyfriend, when can I get married….”
No worries. You have special tactic to use.
“What is your plan to our future?”
“Of course I have plans, which is……hmmm……”
Whenever this happens, apply your special tactic skillfully.
“Then tell me you want to marry me, please!”
Just take it easy and say it in sweet and fun tone.
If this tactic does not make him gather his courage to propose, he really needs to work very hard for himself.
