Times have changed and so have traditions and trends. People are embracing new ways of doing things. New trends are slowly replacing the old traditions. The new standards and trends being set in the society is what many people are opting for. 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. 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 reasons as to why men are the heads of the home and families is because of the societal expectations. Women were never expected to be at the forefront of family decisions. Men are still being considered to be superior than women even to this date. Masculine roles are being adopted by women in the current society. Women are taking up the role of proposing marriages to men. Men are finding it normal for women to propose to them for marriages. Women empowerment and movements such as feminism has led women into believing that they can take up such roles. A woman proposing to a man no longer takes people by surprise.
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. Women have adapted new methods to use when proposing to men which they consider modern. 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 choose not to go conventional like men do by purchasing 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. 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. The uniqueness of proposing to a man is found in the way one uses new styles and strategies.
