What do you think? Do you think it is only possible for men to propose or is it common for women to do it and if so, would they be taken seriously by their betroth??

claddagh ring - claddagh ring
I think because custom has it that the male proposes, I do not think a woman asking him would be taken seriously. Unless of course SHE bought him a ring like the man does a woman during proposal. Because a man does wear a ring when he is engaged. And why shouldn't he? An engagement ring shows everyone that the woman has been asked for her hand in marriage. What about a man? Why doesn't he wear a ring to show he is committed to be wed? Therefore, I think it would be hard for men to take it seriously if a woman asked. Now, I am not saying a woman can not ask...I am just saying that if she does, maybe she should get him a ring too. If you turn the tables, why not turn them completely.:) I think a claddagh ring would do nicely in this situation.

It not depends on seriousness or lazy ness. but it depends on how much they believe each other & how much they love. If a Guy proposes & girl rejects he will suffer Only If he was beliving her & he was in deep love with her. with the girls it would be same But, Guys can control there emotion but girls cant.girls will cry Immediately if a guy rejects her.

I think women are very serious when they propose to their man. However, if a woman has to do that, I have to wonder just how committed the man is.
