In the bible: Did Ruth propose to Boaz?
What are some reasons why a woman in a (long-term relationship) who wants to get married would rather sit silently in frustration waiting for a marriage proposal than to make one? Is it fear of rejection or the need for a fairytale proposal? Why should it matter who proposed to whom especially if one gets what they want in the end? Is it okay for a woman to be proactive when it comes to marriage proposals? At least it saves time and one knows where they stand. By the way an "ultimatum" is not a proposal!
I understand Ruth did not propose to Boaz; by the custom of that country, he had a duty to marry her since he was a close relative of her late husband.
Women don't propose to men because it's still not considered acceptable in the US. It makes the woman look desperate. A french woman told me this saying; "The man chooses; the woman decides." Since women are twice as likely as men to file for divorce, it's probably just as well she doesn't rush into the situation.
