Should a Woman Propose?

Here's an article saying students at one college don't think a woman should propose. I was kind of surprised to think college students feel this way. I think it's kind of old-fashioned that only the man should propose. What do you think? Here's the link:

For those of you who saw the movie Blindside, the couple at the center of the movie did an interview and he was asked when he first realized that the wife was going to run things even though he was a successful businessman. He replied, "When she handed me the ring and told me it was time to propose.''

  1. Personally, I wouldn't... But I don't find anything wrong with. It really depends on the people in the relationship.

  2. while on the surface -- it seems like it wouldn't matter?

    somehow it does

    In my experience NOTHING will encourage a man to consider marriage until he wants it

    nope

    NEEDS it

    and once he needs it -- He will do whatever it takes -- including -- breakup with you to go find the right woman to marry (if he's ready to marry & you're not the girl)

    you hear that all the time -- a guy is with a woman for 7 years -- she always wanted to marry -- he wouldn't -- they break up and he marries some girl he's known 6 months.

    asking a man to marry is fruitless.

    we just have to let them know that we see them as a long term prospect -- and say yes if we want to

    That being said? -- marriage? you can keep it.

    1. Good point about a man has to want it. And you sound down on marriage? Can you share why?

  3. Sadly I have to agree with the first two comments. My first reaction was of course a woman can ask. But really.. not so true.
    Strange that it is still so one sided.

    1. Yes, interesting it is so onesided in an era where women are being more upfront about what they want and need.

  4. I proposed. Of course it's a longer story than that. But we were in one of those relationships where we'd been together for 7 years and I was ready to get married, and upon reflection, so was he.

    1. Yes, after seven years, he probably needed a nudge.

  9. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.
