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 on the verge of doing away with the traditions. 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. Societal norms are being defied. There are standards set on how to handle relationships and marriages.
Men are the people who were expected to initiate proposals with regards to marriage. The reasons as to why men are the heads of the home and families is because of the societal expectations. It was never expected of women to make decisions. Up to date, the supremacy of men is still being held in high esteem. Masculine roles are being adopted by women in the current society. The most popular trend that is cropping up is the trend of women proposing to 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. People are not surprised when a woman proposes to a man.
It is important to note however that the new trends come with new rules and methodology. Proposing to a man by a woman is not done in the same manner in which men propose to women. 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. After asking for parents’ consent, a woman is also expected to find a good ring to propose with. 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. A women is also expected to propose only when she is sure about that she wants to spend the rest of her life with the man she is proposing to and not out of desperation. Genuine intentions for proposing makes it easier to complete the process of proposing. There is another conventional method of proposing that does not have to be followed by ladies when proposing, going down on one knee. Following the conventional procedures might look too obvious and monotonous for a woman. There is need to come up with a new and unique style of bringing forth one’s feelings when proposing to a man.
