Why girls cannot propose to boys first?
September 14, 2011 11:15am CST
Under the age of 18 a teen is too young to get married, but many do.There is a low percentage of teens that are mature beyond their years and do get married. Often women will propose to the man she is going with as he may be too shy and afraid she will say 'no' and never gets around to ask her, so many women will propose to the man. Actually, girls can propose to guys first.There is no law against it. . However, some men may not like that idea because they feel it emasculates them. Are you agree with me?

hmmm.. woman proposing man ehh?? I disagree the idea.. It's very unladylike.. hmm Proposing is a man's job after all.. The girl must patiently wait for the guy to ask her about marriage.. And aside from that, it's much more romantic when the guy take his first move..

Hi Habib, I don't know why it should be a problem if the woman proposes. If they are that close and mature that they would be considering marriage then it shouldn't matter who pops the question first. Still, I do know men that are shallow enough that they would take offense and for some odd reason think it somehow takes away from their "masculinity". I don't see why it should be such a big deal. It's just a question after all. Still, I know that for some men, it really is an issue.

I think it's a bad idea because men can be made to 'feel' a certain way, and not realize that what they are feeling isn't 'love' but a physical chemical reaction to being around a female. The two are very different. What I've seen happen is a guy will be seduced by a woman, whether intentional or not, and then years later wake up and realize they have no interest in this person. Then you have this horrible break up which hurts both people. It's a bad plan. A would suggest a woman wait for the guy to determine for himself that he wants to spend his whole life with them. If they do not on their own, determine that for themselves, you are asking for hurt and pain. I've watched it happen.

well, in our tradition its always men who do the proposal and never the woman. it kinda look too straight forward for a girl to propose to a boy. that might hold true that men would feel emasculated. and for a girl to receive rejection from men? its very humiliating. i don't really like the idea too that girls will do the begging its kinda odd when that thing happens. but its true nowadays? i dunno. its being seen on movies. might be true or not. but whatever it is, i guess men should always do the proposal.
