I chuckled as soon as I set out to write on this topic. I am certain that we have seen several kinds of proposals from something as simple as, “Marry, me” said over a lunch date, to, “Thus saith the Lord, Sister Bimpe….” to very creative proposals like asking from the sky or inscriptions on the sands of a beach with red petals and candles arranged all about.

You have probably heard several arguments about which is best, moderate, worse and all sorts when it comes to proposals. Is there then a right kind of proposal?

I think what should determine the right kind of proposal will have to be unique to the relationship of the couple, what obtains in their culture or environment. For some, the right proposal may mean that the husband will ask for her hand in marriage through her father first, for another it may mean that the parents of the man go to make known the intentions of their son to the family of the lady, for another, it may be over lunch and that’s the norm for them.

As long as the couple know that they will be getting married, however the proposal occurs as long as they are ready to take that step, is just right. A proposal in the sky or in the middle of a busy area asked on bended knees to the excitement of the crowd around isn’t a determinant of how successful the marriage will turn out. Just do whatever makes the both of you happy as long as it’s not against the will of God.
