Of course, Nigeria is a land of traditions and customs. It is unusual for a woman to ask a man for his hand in marriage. But times are changing now, so here are 4 reasons for a modern Nigerian girl to start proposing to her man.
1. Women do everything better
As often said, everything a man can do a woman can do better. Instead of waiting for a prince to come for you, why not to take matters into your own hands? We live in the world where most conventions are broken.
2. Men are big babies
All men are like babies. They want to be fed, given special attention and taken care of. So the best care you can give to him is to give him a ring. He probably deserves it as much as you do.
3. Time is not on your side
Often times, there is too much pressure on women from friends and, especially, parents to settle down. Your parents keep asking you when you will be married and all the ladies you know are already in their marital homes. So if you have already found a guy you love, why not to give him an engagement ring? If he does not do it first, of course.
4. You don’t want to wait for too long
Some time ago, Nigerian guys used to get married approximately at the age of 25. Now they prefer to wait till 30 or even 35. They want to buy a car, get a bigger house and so on. If this happens, you will be forced to wait a while for him to accomplish all of his goals. So if you two are in love – just propose to him. And don’t forget to cook something tasty!
