    Guys, do you mind if a lady asks you to marry her?

    I personally would prefer to be the one that ask...but I want to know about other guys

    It's of course traditional for a guy to ask, but its it happened the other way around, the person asked would still have to answer much the same way. If they are truly in love and want to spend their lives together the answer would hopefully be yes.

    In anything it would be a nice conversation piece to be able to tell people that your wife proposed to you smile.

    When "two people" are (in love) and (want to spend their lives together) then it shouldn't matter who "pops the question" first. I would imagine the only way it would bother me is if the woman asking was someone I had no intention of marrying. Of course women must also feel "uncomfortable" having to say "no" to man who proposes. Personally I have always admired people who go after what they want in life.

    Awhile back I wrote a hub on this subject. … ngmarriage
    The upside for a woman proposing is it (empowers her to know where she stands) instead of waiting around, looking for signs, praying, or hoping for something that may never happen. Life is short! A woman should not let "tradition" rob her of her independence. If her proposing to her man offends him or puts him off it's only because he is NOT in love with her enough to marry her and now he has to let her know. In order for him to be "the one" he has to see her as being "the one". Rejection only means your search is not over. One man's opinion! :-)

    I would have to be the one to ask, if a girl proposed to me, I wouldn't take her seriously. At the same time, I think it's okay for a woman to talk up the idea of marriage, but I'd have to ask.

    I asked my husband to marry me and he never seemed to have a problem with it. Yeah, he doesn't go around telling all his army buddies that his wife beat him to the punch, but he'd tell them if they asked.

    I can understand a man wanting to be the one to ask, but I think that our society's changing so much that it shouldn't be a crime if a woman wants to pop the question. Maybe not with an engagement ring and getting down on one knee though, as that could be a little emasculating.

    here's the thing for women to ask guy to marry him...its either the guy seems like don't have plans to marry her or still taking his time to ask the question..that is the time the girl do the honorable act lols to ask voluntarily  the question...its like an act of desperation...she wants to know whats in store for her in his man..what is the plan of his man to the relationship just for bf/gf and won't level up to marriage???...that's women thing!! pressure his man...if guy ask a woman to marry means..i will give up my bachelor ways,my single life to be with you because he loves his woman...
    well it is not an issue if the woman is the one asking to marry you
    but if you love your woman,why let her propose to you and not you to her??
    it says a lot to a man if that is going to happen
    make your woman feel that they are a woman in your relationship
    make them go giggle
    make them feel like a princess

    that is why MAN are the one wearing pants!!! lolsss
    have the guts to ask that says a lot to a MAN!!! "REAL MAN"

    There is nothing wrong with her asking when both people are in the same place. Technically, women ask anyway by other means and the guy already knows the answer in most cases. The answer has already been given but she wants the whole asking thing to be done any way.
