    my mother in law asked my FIL and well they worked out great! BUT my DH was asked by his college girlfiriend and said yes because he felt pressured into it. so it all depends on the situation. if you love and want to marry her, by all means say yes!

    I don’t think it really matters who asks as long as you both want to be married to each other.

    If she wants to and the couple isn’t super traditional why not? We talled a lot about marriage before getting engaged and proposing was something important to him so he proposed. But I have no issue with a man doing it or just a mutual discussion

    There’s no good argument why a woman can’t. I posed this question to my husband a year or so  back and he said he would have accepted if I had proposed to him.<br /><br />If two people want to be married, who cares who proposes? The end result is the same.

    I’m gonna go against the grain on this one. “Should a woman propose to a man?” I guess it’s fine, but I never would. Call me old fashioned, but I absolutely wouldn’t. Of course, if it was the norm for the woman to propose and you were asking if a man should, then I’d probably say, “No. That’s just weird. Let the woman do it.” lol

    Rogerk:  I think you can and should wear any ring you like! But to answer your specific question, I would personally have never proposed to my DH. He told me soon after we met that he would marry me and I trusted him on that and he followed through. call me old fashioned but the man should do the asking…but he if he knows she’s the one he shouldn’t drag it out for no good reason!

    I proposed to mine, it was fine. There’s absolutely no reason why women shouldn’t be able to propose or why men should feel obligated to decline if they do!

    My FI asked me not to propose to him before he proposed to me so I wouldn’t “steal his thunder,” but he does wear a man-gagement ring. He said it wasn’t fair that I get two rings and he’d only get one, so we got him something to wear while we’re engaged that he’ll either switch to his right hand or just keep for when we travel.

    Women can do whatever they want since it is no longer 1950.

    Rogerk:  Holding over your head forever? OK. I would suggest some therapy for both of you as that doesn’t sound healthy at all and neither does your attitude towards telling family and admitting it and to work on your “we are men” thinking.
