Times have changed and so have traditions and trends. 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. Everyone is creating their own rules that they want to follow without being questioned. The norms of the society are being defied by many people. Such things such as marriages and relationships have set standards on how they should be handled.
Marriage proposals were things that were mandated to be done by men. Heads of families and homes are societally meant to be men. Women were expected to take the back seat when it comes to decision making in families. The notion has been carried to latter days. 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. 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.
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. These methods and strategies are considered to be modern and fit for the process. Women are mandated to ask for the hand of marriage of the man from the man’s mother. Getting a perfect ring for the proposal is very vital. Women can go beyond purchasing rings in order to break the conventional trend by men of buying rings. Women opt for things such as wrist watches, or a pair of shirt cufflinks to use for proposal. 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. 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. There is need to come up with a new and unique style of bringing forth one’s feelings when proposing to a man.
