Ladies: I have given one of the right responses and it has largely been overlooked. Ok. No problem. Let me say this: I still have friends who have dropped to old maid status waiting on their boyfriends to ask for their hand in marriage. It's not going to happen ladies with some guys. Not all guys are this way but a lot of them need a little push. Your choice.

My husband proposed to me with a gorgeous garnet engagment ring in his hand.

Two weeks later, I went to his house, proposed, and gave him a beautiful garnet ring.

We both had engagement rings!

I mostly did. I am female. I would recommend it. After a period of time if the male seems as if he is not going to ask, bring the subject up. I did. He made a decision shortly after. I already had my answer ready. You know what it was. Almost thirty years later. The answer is still the same.

only the Lord has that right, so we should be seeking his will constantly. then we will know when to ask.

Linda3657, if you go to the bottom of this blog, it's very similar to what you are asking.

Any form of re-birth is a kind of reincarnation. If the spirit goes from the old body into the new, even that is reincarnation. I wonder if a flower can do that...no...not unless it is The Lily or The Rose.

Flowers are better, only while you are alive.
When you are dead, all the flowers in the world will not give the 'dead' new life.
Neither will reincarnation.

Where have all the Christians gone?
Labeled right wing and intolerant,
Where have all the Christians gone?
Fed to lions long ago.

Where have all the Christians gone?
Gone to motivational conventions, everyone.
Are we not here to learn,

Where have all the preachers gone?
Afraid to mention hell's fire.
Where have all the preachers gone?
Kicked out in the the 'cold'.

Where have all the children gone?
Gone to malls and movies.
Where will they ever turn,
Where will they ever turn.

Where have all the soldiers gone?
Do you keep them in your prayers?
Where have all the soldiers gone?
So many years ago.


Where have all the soldiers gone.
God, please bring them home.

Where have all the bloggers gone?
Where are those with tenure?
Where are those that use the Bible?
Where are those that care more about Christ-like replies than drawing attention to themselves?
Where are those that would give their life for Jesus Christ, rather than live and breathe their political stance?
Where are those who don't see witchcraft as another avenue for seeking their 'God'?
Where is the body of Christ?

Anonymous ... I too remeber that Pete Seegar song.
It did not go exactly as you quoted.
It was about the folly and sorrow of war, not the folly of girls

Jeanne,

Your "type" is my "type". It's interesting that you noted that he doesn't have to be "macho"...A manly man who is secure in his masculinity, does not have to prove himself by beefing up. He Can be Well built, but there are lot of beefed up guys who don't have a secure sense of masculinity. Manly [to me] = Rightous, Just, Leader, Protector...

Um they usually do because men tend to not do what they are supposed to. Women drop hints and if the guy can't pick it up they drop bigger hints like "when are you going to ask me to marry you" eventually we get the picture.
---Jared on 11/8/06


Yes I think she can to thine ownself be true so if that is your personality then do so. I personally like a man's man (not macho, cave type)but a strong man and I enjoy him pursuing me-but again thats just me. Not that if U ask a man he isnt a mans' man he might just not be aware of what U want that's all. Whats the worse that can happen, he says no. But at least u now know.
---Jeanne on 11/8/06


Sure. Women can do the proposing. Plenty do so now. But how interested in you [woman] can the man really be, if you need to take on his role to get what you want: Marriage. If he [the man] does not propose to you [the woman] then he is not Madly, Deeply, Eternaly in Love with you.

We didn't have a phone until I was a senior in high school. Then it was a party line. If girls called the house for my brother or me, Mama would give them an earful. She would shame them into never calling the house again. Our sisters would all sit around and giggle/tease for months on end. Let this man get down on his knees with flowers and a ring.

My Mama always told me, when a girl chases a husband down, he won't be happy. Men need to think it's their idea. Don't force it. If you are a praying lady, pray about it. God may have someone else for you. If he doesn't have the gumption to ask you, and you get yourself in a frenzy with a fancy gift - I think that might deflate the whole romance picture.
---Spike on 10/3/06


Alan and Jay, I pray that God leads awesome Godly women to you in His time. :)
---Mrs._Williams on 10/3/06


I think it's alright for either a man or woman proposes, as long as they have been going together for a long time and have talked about marriage. For the girl that wants to buy her fiance a 200 diamond watch, make sure he's going to say yes before you invest that kind of money.
---Norma on 10/2/06


Kim ... A watch with 200 diamonds?
What would a man want with that?
A ring is a mark of a bond ... I don't think a watch is that.

Thank you Spike. I had a super marriage for 33 years, until sadly just over 4 years ago, my wife died. She told me I should marry again (of course only if the right person turned up!)
Your prayers are appreciated.
---Alan8869_of_UK on 10/2/06


UK Alan, the ladies say you are a good lookin thang. If you really want one, I will pray you find a wife.
---Spike on 10/2/06


To give you a direct answer, No. A man convinced against his own will, is of the same opinion still.(don't know who said that.) How will he ever have the "buy in" if you do the asking. It's really the man's place to ask the woman to marry. Unless you plan to wear the pants all the days of your marriage. Save your money. Let him ask you. I was never interested in anyone who tracked me down like animal. Showing up everywhere you go (just by chance, ha) and all those other wiles. Don't chase.
---Spike on 10/2/06


You're not trying to buy him are you?

I wish a lady would do it to me!
The only ones that do propose to me are twenty-somethings from remote corners of the world. very flattering, but it would be very tiring!
---Alan8869_of_UK on 10/2/06


I wanna propose to my boyfriend but not with a ring with a very nice watch that has about 200 diamonds... Should I?

Moderator: Are you sure he would say yes.
---kim on 10/2/06


I dont see any text in the bible that says women should not propose to men...my daughter inlaw proposed to my son and the marriage is a very happy one..I know some women who proposed to their men for their hand in marriage...they are happy..I dont see any difference here as to whom should propose...I would do the same before someone else get there before me lol
---jana on 8/26/06


I propose to my husband.And we have a great relatioship. Been together for about 15years.

"ASK" and it shall be given unto you. In the case of the widow, you find RUTH asking BOAZ to marry her. There are other occasions as well in the Bible where women ASK.
---miguel on 5/2/05


I said in another blog that I have no problems with a woman,who is in love with a man,in pursuing him and letting him know that she is interrested in him for a mate. I wish one were after me right now. And so it follows that I wouldn't have a problem with a woman asking me to marry her. This is not the ancient middle east,or the modern middle east where women are property.
---Jay80108 on 4/30/05


A gentle way of bringing up the topic, and letting someone know your heart's desires, is to say "I really feel I could only be truly happy if married." Another way to encourage a man to propose, is to be totally chaste and pure. Then in order to show the love he feels, he will ask for your hand in marriage, and admire you forever as being a woman he can trust! However, if God is not in this union, be open to that outcome as well! He knows best for us!

If the relationship is getting mature and serious, the man may be afraid to propose - he may be afraid of hearing a "no" answer.

If you are following your culture's tradition, I'd recommend you let that go.

You may want to start a conversation about the possibility of marriage and take it from there.

Don't forget to pray for guidance - praying together with him will surely bear more fruits.

Don't sit there burn yourself out. Go fo it and ask. Men and women have a right to ask for it so don't shy out.
---Jimy on 4/23/05


I feel that it is the man's responcablity to ask the woman to marry but my brothers wife did ask her to marry. I don't believe there is any Biblical backing to where a woman asked a man for marriage but I don't see anything wrong with it as it is expressing your honest feelings. This lets him know where you stand and what you want. If you would like to talk more about it you may write me. Have a Blessed Day, matth3369
