So, contrary to statements I may have made many months ago, I seem to be gleefully headed down the aisle once again. Amusingly enough, I am 0-2 on proposals, though. With my first wife, it was always assumed that we would get married, and while we were on vacation, we ran into a place we both thought was perfect, and so it was a mutual decision from there on out. No official proposal ever took place.
This time around, my future bribe proposed to me (taking both of us by surprise, I might add, but I still had enough of my wits about me to say yes). A number of people have started off asking me how I proposed, so they’re taken aback when I tell them I didn’t do the proposing (my mom, in fact, said in a state of bewildered amusement, “Well, modern times, I guess!”). Everyone seems pleased, though, even if it seems to strike some as unusual.
So I’m starting this poll to see how others feel about a woman proposing to a man in an opposite-sex relationship. If you’ve actually been in a relationship where the female proposed to the male, I’d love to hear details. I don’t know how to craft the poll as it would relate to same-sex marriages and unions, but I have a number of friends in such relationships and have never asked how the proposals went, so I’d love to hear from people in same-sex relationships, too!
Poll to follow shortly – please come back and vote!
