Trends, norms and traditions have changed with the changing times. The new and emerging ways of handling issues is what many people are opting for. Traditions and norms are being discarded as new ones are being adopted. The society is setting new standards and trends that are being followed by many. People are creating their own trends that they don’t expect to be questioned. Societal norms are being defied. 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. 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. 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. A woman proposing to a man no longer takes people by surprise.
New trends tend to bring about new strategies and methods 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. 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. Tokens such as a pair of cufflinks or wrist watch can be used by women to propose marriage to their men. 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. Women do not necessarily need to follow the conventional norm of going down on their knee when proposing to a man. Following the conventional procedures might look too obvious and monotonous for a woman. The uniqueness of proposing to a man is found in the way one uses new styles and strategies.
