That’s right ladies, 2012 is a leap year and that means this Wednesday, Feb 29, you can officially do away with marital ‘tradition’ – and whip out a man ring for your guy. Around 9 percent of proposals are from women to men, and studies show around 80 percent of men WOULD accept if their gal popped the question. Hey, it worked for Monica and Chandler, right?
I’ve known three women who proposed to their partners. One did it because the guy dragged his feet for SOOOO long and she was ready and wanted to get married. He said yes, but their rocky relationship continued to be rocky, and she’s now about to marry someone else (for the record, her husband-to-be popped the question). Another proposed, he said yes, and they’re engaged, but she did say, “I think he was planning it, and was a bit sad that I guzumped him.”
The third woman I know who proposed is a modern, independent girl who decided after a couple of years to take the reins. They’d talked about marriage, but she was the one to ask. He accepted, and they’re super happy.
What do you think about women proposing? Would you?
