The sight of a young, cute and happy couple always has well-wishers hoping to be in a similar situation. Some individuals do not often have it easy when it comes to finding true love but for others they are lucky.
Popping the marriage question can sometimes make even the biggest men have wobbly knees seeing as not all of them are sure of what the response would be.
When the lady eventually accepts the proposal it is a joyful moment for the couple because it marks a significant change in their lives. Recently, a young and handsome Nigerian man identified as Akeem (@keemzyme) on Twitter took to his handle to share cute photos with his fiancé after she said yes to his marriage proposal.
They looked very much in love and at ease in each other’s company. See his post below:
We wish them a happy union.
In Akeem and his fiance's case it is obvious that he popped the question. However Legit.ng recently shared several mixed reactions concerning ladies who propose marriage to their beaus.
Some people expressed mixed views over the trend. They noted that although the development was alien to Nigeria’s culture, it is becoming trendy in recent times due to increasing influence of western lifestyle, modernisation and pressure to get married.
According to some Nigerians, women who make marriage proposals to men should be applauded for their confidence, rather than ridiculed, condemned or labeled desperate.
However, others said they were against the trend, adding that such proposals have been and should remain the sole responsibility of the man.
Abdul Sarki of Garki 2 said: “Some men of marriageable age delay proposing to ladies they love due to indecisiveness, poor financial status and other economic realities. Thank God for modernisation, women are not restricted to seek what they want, and even asking men to marry them when they feel they are suitable.
“The society should stop judging or condemning women that propose marriages to men, but rather applaud and encourage them for taking the bold step."
Julie Fadason, a resident in Asokoro, said she proposed to her husband due to age factor and the need to start bearing children before menopause.
“I had to take the bull by the horn when I felt no marriage proposal was forthcoming despite being in a relationship for over five years with my husband. We were both not getting younger and we needed to act fast since we both wanted children.”
