15 Perks of Getting Married in Your Early 20s (or Even Younger)

Would You Propose?

This wedding season, it's one thing to worry about how to respond when a proposal is in public or (cringe) on cupcakes, but what if you had to worry about doing the proposing yourself?While some women may find it a matrimonial tradition that can't be broken, others may see it as another "men only" duty that should be more inclusive. I wonder, if your dating relationship is one in which the guy calls all the shots, are you less likely to get down on one knee? And if you are planning on or hoping to do the asking, is it because he's dragging his feet? Or is it something else?

Fill me in!

I wouldn't propose! If he likes me, he'll marry me.. On the other side girls should use the <a href="http://mysexystories.com/blog/2010/05/06/rules-of-attraction-how-to-get-the-guy/">Rules of Attraction: How To Get The Guy.</a>. Maybe that's what were missing!

I'd never propose! I need to make sure he's ready for marriage, and not just me. I know he is but I can't wait to see how he proposes. :) We've discussed it & have even set a date. He just needs to get the money together once I'm working & job done.

a proposal would not be ideal for me, a mutual agreement sounds more romantic and intimate. and i dont care for a wedding either

I wouldn't. I think my boyfriend would be upset and take it very personally.

No. It's not because of tradition, either. I just want to know that he thinks enough of me to ask.

He beat me to it :P Plus, I liked it that way. But I think I would have done it myself if he took too long to do it haha!

Personally, no. When it comes to a formal proposal, I prefer the man to do it.However, like Pistil, I'm okay with some sort of discussion to express mutual agreement PRIOR to the actual proposal. But when it comes to the actual proposal, I prefer the man to take the lead. Again, it's just a matter of personal preference.Incidentally, this is how my husband and I went about it.

I imagine my engagement to be a mutual agreement between the both of us. I don't like surprises. If the discussion doesn't come up soon though, I will have a proposal: elope.

he'd have to do it in order for me to believe that somebody actually wants to marry my crazy @ss :P

Don't think I would. Not because I strive to be traditional (ew), but it's just common sense - more often than not, girls will be ready for marriage before the guy so if he hasn't proposed, he's probably not in that place yet! You don't wanna sound pushy - whether you're a guy or a girl. Marriage is really just one fancy party and some legal perks. If you really love someone you shouldn't be in a rush to prove it to the rest of the world, in my opinion.

No, I was too traditional. I left that for my husband to do.

My wedding won't be traditional at all, and for the most part I'm not very traditional, but that's one thing I don't want to give up.

I guess I kinda did... I would have liked a romantic proposal and nice ring. But my husband was in school and couldn't afford a nice ring and would've rather waited to get married until he could afford one (solely for that reason). I decided I'd rather go on and get married w/o a ring rather than wait two more years. I convinced him I was serious about this over dinner one night and we decided to go on and get married. It wouldn't have happened that way if I hadn't instigated it, so I guess I kinda did propose :)
