Do you think it is okay for the woman to propose to the man?

For the males how would you feel if she asked you?Just curious to see how people really feel about this.Personally, I don't think it really matters either way who pops the question.

I feel that it is all up to the people and their relationship. If the woman is strong enough and comfortable enough with herself, then there is no reason she shouldn't ask the man to marry her. It seems far to many women are still stuck in the old way of thought that the woman is to be subservient to a man. The woman is equal if not better than men. Muscles mean nothing, it is the ability to nurture and give life that makes women trully better than men.

If a man loves you and can picture spending his life with you, the natural course is for him to ask you. If he doesn't and you think he should, he's probably gunshy and just needs a little prompting. I really think women should never propose. Men are naturally hunters, and one of their biggest game in this day and age is their future wife. Chastise me, but it's true. If a woman asks a man to marry him it'll never work. I know 2 couples that tried it this way. One ended up getting married, and divorcing a few years later because, as the man said, he was never entirely sure it was his idea to get married. The other broke off their engagement and the man asked the woman on her birthday a few months later. Men might initially be ok with getting proposed to, but in the long run, will feel emasculated by it and it will plague them. The woman's one and only job when it comes to proposing is to be her fabulous charming self and the man will come around eventually. If he doesn't.. would you really want to spend your life with someone who couldn't even make the decision to put a ring on your finger? Indecisiveness is a horrible trait in a partner.

You make an excellent point there. Though I think there is nothing wrong with a woman asking the ultimate question I personally would want the guy to propose. It is just that more romantic. It also shows the woman that he has thought about it and wants to be married.
