Is it all right in this day and age for a woman to propose marriage to a man? I thought it was. I read that on the last episode of "The Bachelorette," as soon as she picked her man, he got down on one knee and proposed. What happened to her being in charge? Maybe that's not a good example because shows like that have to stay traditional when it comes to romance, but in general, am I deluded on this?

I think it's sort of wrong for the girl to ask the guy, only because girls traditionally get to have "their way" with the type of wedding they want, it's a girl's dream and all. Blah. I always thought that maybe guys think about how they will propose to that special lady someday, and if she goes ahead and steps on that, it might make him a bit put out.

Absolutely. If Women are all about equality, Why not let it be socially acceptable for them to propose?
