We're in the 21st century and woman have an important role in society. In the past, woman usually know as housewifes, but now we can regard them as a manager, a director, and even a president; and in the past man always the one who proposes to the woman, is it change nowaday ? should woman propose first to man? why and why not?

I don't think there's anything wrong with a woman proposing to a man, as long as she feels comfortable with it, and she truly believes that he's going to say "yes." If it was me though, I prefer a man to propose to me (of course if we feel that way about each other) because that way I would have that solid security knowing that he's 100% ready to tie the knot, and not just saying "yes" to me (if I propose) because he don't want to hurt my feelings by saying "no I'm not ready yet." Maybe he wouldn't lead me on like that if he's an honest man right? Well I have to be safe anyways. If he pop the big question on me, there's no change he's not ready.

I really don't think it matters either way. Assuming the couple has already discussed getting married in the future, it's just a matter of who decides to take the plunge first. There is absolutely no good reason for a specific gender always having to propose. It's a silly idea.

As children we grow up believing that the man should be the one to propose msrrisge to a woman. It is just an acceptance tradition handed down through the years. There is nothing wrong with a man taking the iniative. If she is committed to a mand believes that there future is together, there is no reason she should not be the one to propose marriage. Some men are a bit cautious when it comes to matters of the heart. they may need a little push in the right romantic direction. It is nice to have a man propose marriage to you. If you feel it is taking too long for him to pop the question, ladies, do it yourself. You may just get the answer you are hoping for.

Women wait to be proposed and they might end up just that....waiting. LOL. Anyway, I know of female friends who proposed first and are making good in their relationship. Perhaps women are catching up in that area. What matters is the kind and quality of relationship you develop after the proposal...whether its male or female who proposed first.
