Making a marriage proposal as a woman

Traditions and fixed roles are the reason why the majority of marriage proposals are still made by men. By getting down on one knee, the man expresses his desire to spend the rest of his life with his partner. Above all, the proposal shows his willingness to provide for his partner or a potential family and to take on responsibility.

But why can't the woman ask the question of all questions and express all these needs? In times of emancipation and equality, more and more women are deciding not to wait for their partner to pop the big question, but to become active themselves.

Nevertheless, marriage proposals by women are still the exception rather than the rule. We take a look at why this is the case.


Finding the perfect moment to propose can be an exciting and meaningful journey. From romantic gestures in the air to more intimate moments at home, there are countless ways to take the big step and pop the question of all questions. No matter which option you choose, the most important part is love and the desire to spend the rest of your lives together.
