If a man wanted to marry a woman, he would propose to the woman himself, why bother?


Following this logic : if a woman wanted to marry a man, she would propose to the man herself, why bother ?

Stupid patriarchal society who cannot understand a woman who takes matters into her own hands. The only reason you find this wrong is because it challenges your preconceptions.

I don't see anything wrong with it, except that in China there is far more focus on and pressure for the guy to have saved up enough money for a house etc beforehand. I've seen this pressure preventing many guys postponing their proposals or even getting heavily attached to someone. Perhaps it's just me, but I see it as the girl effectively saying (because surely she knows about financial or family situation) "I know.. but I don't care and don't want to wait. I love you and just want to be married to you. The rest can come later", thus helping to remove all that pressure from the guy.

However, I do think it must take a very brave girl to do so. Heck its a brave thing for a guy to do, let alone challenge tradition and risk making the tale of that 'romantic moment' a laughable situation to many others.

I can also understand many girls 'asking' (but not necessarily proposing) in order not to waste time with someone that really doesn't have enough sincerity to do so later.

a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...
