Just a hypothetical question, I'd like to see where you ladies are at with this...

Would you ever propose to your boyfriend? Why or why not?

In my situation, I would not.  Because we both have a past, and I tend to get over my past hurts/betrayals etc quicker than him, I am quicker to forgive and not hold on to thing.  He is one to hold on, he is one to project that his past exw's whorish ways would be an "Every woman does it" thought process.  For Me,  I needed him to find trust, true love, and devotion.  To see me for  ME and not see me , with fears of me doing what his exw did.

It took him over 4yrs to propose, but when he did.. I knew in his heart, he had overcome and that he was Ready!!    

He proposed this past Christmas Eve, and We married on Valentine's day :)

Absolutely 100% NO. I would never propose to anyone. Ever. That is the man's job. Period.

 I will not.

He's been married twice, neither of which was really his idea. So, this time I'd like it to be his idea.

I'm old-fashioned in some ways. Honestly, I would never propose to a man.

This is exactly my stance as well.

I married twice before Both out of obligation because I became Pregnant'

He was married once before me, again it was out of obligation because of a pregnancy 

THIS marriage for us, there are no "obligations" just pure love, and what we feel.  It is the best feeling, to marry for the RIGHT reasons, to know this is My very very best friend. and..not becasue its the "right thing to do"..   Its amazing, truly amazing! 

Quoting Fayanne:

 I will not.

He's been married twice, neither of which was really his idea. So, this time I'd like it to be his idea.

IM already married...but if I we're in the situation, no. I'm old fashioned like that, and tbh very honest, it would bother me that I had to be the one to propose.

I adore him, so yes.  But we are both very traditional so he would not have had it.

No, I wouldn't have. My husband is very traditional in some ways, and he wouldn't have been ok with that. As it is, he proposed a month after we met. I said yes, but I'd have never had the guts to ask that quickly :)
