I love my boyfriend and would like to get married. I’m thinking of asking him, wondering if it’s the right thing to do.

  • There’s nothing wrong with asking. I hope everything goes well.

  • Yes, of course it’s okay! Traditionally it’s only on February 30 (so once every four years), but I don’t see why we should limit ourselves to that.

  • Yes, in 2019, for sure. My daughter hinted and hinted for her boyfriend to pop the question. I told her to just ask him, but prepared for a possible no. He ended up asking her, she said yes

  • YES! Men take foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr haha Go for it!

  • I think it’s fine for a woman to ask a man. I’m just not sure if the man would feel like you’ve taken that opportunity away from him if he was planning to ask you.

  • How did you go? Some men are more traditional than others and wouldn’t appreciate it

  • I think etiquette says on leap years…. but I think its fine anytime.

  • yes of course! My friend asked her partner…I cant wait for the wedding!

  • Valentines Day is around the corner too!

  • Absolutely; equality! If it feels right; do it. Good Luck!

  • These days yes ,but he wants to first.

  • It depends on each individual! I proposed to my husband after only being together for 6 months, he wore the engagement ring and everything! I do not regret it we have been happily been together for nearly ten years and married for 4 years.

  • Id say go for it but…. there aren’t many traditions left these days. Let him ask your dad and then ask you, it is a great surprise for you.

  • If you know in your heart he is the one ..GO FOR IT..This is 2014 not 1914 lol. All the very best of wishes for future happiness. ;-)

  • Sure! If it feels right to you, it’s the right thing to do. Good luck!

  • YES!!! Why not if you are both in love you can’t wait for a man!

  • I know stereotypical romance & all, but I’m old fashioned & would still prefer a man to propose. Sorry

  • It’s up to you, have you spoken about marriage before? And would he be ok with you asking ?

  • Heck yeah!! If you want it, go for it :)

  • Yes it’s ok for a girl to ask a guy! If you’ve discussed marriage together and think it’s for you then I cant see why not. Some guys I think would like to do the asking themselves though but If the answer is yes then I’m sure he wont mind that it’s you that asked and not him.
    Good luck!
