Trends, norms and traditions have changed with the changing times. 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. 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. 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.
New trends come with their own methods and ways of doing things. 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. 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. Desperation should not be the sole reason as to why a woman proposes to a man, instead, it should be the desire to spend the rest of her life with the man that should be the driving force. 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. Coming up with a new style when proposing to a man makes it more lively and unique.
