Times have changed and so have traditions and trends. The new and emerging ways of handling issues is what many people are opting for. New trends are slowly replacing the old traditions. Many people are seeking to embrace the new trends and standards being set in the society. There are rules set by individuals who want to live in a free manner without being questioned. Societal norms are being defied. Such things such as marriages and relationships have set standards on how they should be handled.
In the past, men were expected to initiate marriages proposals. The men are also expected to be the heads of families and homes. It was never expected of women to make decisions. Up to date, the supremacy of men is still being held in high esteem. Women are being empowered to become bold to do the things considered masculine. Men are being proposed for marriages by women. 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. 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. A woman planning to propose to a man should get a perfect ring for the same. Women can go beyond purchasing rings in order to break the conventional trend by men of buying rings. Gifting men tokens such as a pair of cufflinks or a wrist watch during the proposal can replace the conventional buying of rings. 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. 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.
