  • I don't think I would, because I'd be afraid he'd say no. Because if a man really wants to marry you he'd ask. But, if you think he'd really say yes, then go for it. I just wouldn't know how to tell if a man is really ready for marriage and is afraid to ask, or if he's just on a totally different page than you.

  • It's not something I'd personally do, but I don't think there's anything wrong with other women doing it if they feel it's right. I'm just more "traditional" than that, I guess.

  • Is it ok for a woman to wear pants? Is it ok for a woman to vote? Is it ok for a woman to make as much as a man? Yes!

  • I don't think there is anything wrong with it, I've heard plenty of stories about women asking their boyfriends to marry them. Personally I am more traditional and if my DH hadn't proposed I probably would still be just his girlfriend.

  • I wouldn't ask him, unless you guys have talked about it and he says he wants to marry you. But even if he says he wants to marry you, he may not be ready to pop the question to you yet. Its the mans job to ask. Let him ask you.

  • If you feel the situation is right, then go for it. Just be prepared for any answer.
