    Default Leap Year Tradition

    One of the traditions of a leap year is that it is the one day that a woman can propose to her man. What are you thoughts on this?

    Things will never been the same if the man accepted it... lol

    Good idea...and considering it's HIS money I will be spending on his ring, that should work out just dandy.

    I proposed to my man. It was so awkward though. It was more of a joke than anything. Just... a serious joke. Lol.

    And I did buy a ring - with my OWN money.

    I still wish I could have been proposed to though.

    I'm not saying I would propose, but I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. I'm old fashioned in that way too, for myself anyway.

    The man is the bread winner 90% of the time and they should be the ones to decide who they shall be spending that money on for years to come.

    I dunno to me.. marriage is a life long commitment. and if you cannot feel open enough to propose to your man.. or vice versa.. then yous are not 100% compatable.. when me and my man made the decision of marriage it was just not him asking me... IT was more of a talk we had.. HE did not get down on one knee etc... We went together to get my ring.. I dunno I much rather it this way... we were open enough.. LOL my ring came in we went together to pick it up.. he slid it on my finger and we were married 10 months later.. after being together for 5.5 yrs prior.. we also lived together.. so maybe that made the difference.. and here we sit 8 yrs later..

    If (and that's a BIG if) I were to ever get married, I wouldn't want my boyfriend to just out of nowhere pop the question. I'd say no...no doubt in my mind, regardless of who he is. I'd want to discuss it first and make a mutual decision. That way, nobody is getting surprised with these shocking questions lol
    Busy. Irritated. Leave me alone.

    I think its kinda cool that a woman would want to ask her man to marry her...nothing wrong with that at all! Kudo's to those that have done so. [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    I am old fashioned too. I want to stay home and raise my own kids and cook my hubby's supper for when he gets home from work. And that isn't anything to do with not wanting to work or being lazy. I just don't want someone else raising my babies. And we have talked about this.

    I think I told you this before but from the sign of seriousness in our relationship (which was rather quick) he said he would NEVER propose to ANY girl. And if any girl wanted to marry him, she'd have to do the asking. And it was like throughout the rest of our relationship.

    I didn't just surprise him. He caught me looking at rings online and I couldn't stop talking about getting married. And then I asked, but again, it was really stupid and awkward and I was WAY to shy to do it. Men are brave.

    We went out together to get my ring afterwards.
