Genesis 2:18 "Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him." Are you with your proposal helping him choose you as his help mate?
Ruth proposed to Boaz in Ruth 3:9 "He said, "Who are you?" She replied, "I am Ruth, your servant. Marry your servant, for you are a guardian of the family interests." Women proposing to men break social standards. It is only a good idea if you and the man in question are not traditional, don't like to be tied down by others' opinions, you have a lot of guts and you're both ready. There are no hard or fast rules here. If you're already dating a guy and you want to get to take it to the next level, be sure he'll appreciate you proposing and he is ready for it. We're not their yet but with time, the idea of women proposing may become psychologically and socially acceptable. At the end, it really doesn't matter who proposed as long as they are happily married. Am I an advocate of women proposing? No.
Thanks for reading again. Hope you had a good Fathers' Day celebration yesterday. Xoxo
