Propositions are a male domain. So, what do you think about women proposing? Many people are coming out of their shells, to describe to the world how they did it. From women proposing to wedding decor, they are taking part in everything today. In most heterosexual relationships, asking out is done by a man.
Despite all of us being in the 21st century, the age-old tradition continues. Men and women want to go the old way when it comes to marriage. The same thing applies to situations when women are ready to change their surnames after marriage, but men are unwilling to do that.
Thus, when it comes to a man-woman relationship, people want to go the traditional way. And, even when a few women succeeded in doing it, they are unwilling to come out into the open to reveal their stories.
