“Ify whenever I’m ready to propose to her, I’ll make sure I don’t have to kneel.”
“Man of God. Why not?” I responded. “What’s so bad or terrible about kneeling to propose to her? She may be expecting you to, you know?”
He just smiled to me and said “whether she expects it or not. I can’t kneel to ask her to marry me. A whole me, kneel down? No way Ify.”
I know I was suprised my friend thought it too much, for him to go on one knee to propose marriage to the lady he claimed to love. Maybe its because with all the media hype around marriage proposals these days, I’ve just unconsciously found myself thinking;
“that’s the way men ought to propose and that’s what all ladies expect.”
But more importantly though, our conversation caused me to ask a few questions, which I’ve in turn though wise to ask you;
a. What exactly is the origin of this tradition of men going on one knee to propose marriage?
b. What’s the significance of that posture? By kneeling before her, what unspoken message is the guy trying to communicate?
c. Do you think its ABSOLUTELY COMPULSORY the guy proposes marriage to the love of his life on one or both knees? 😍
So there, what answers have you got especially to my third question?
As an individual, personally speaking, do you think it’s ABSOLUTELY COMPULSORY a guy proposes marriage on one or both knees?
What are your reasons for your stance?
