Are you wondering whether it’s okay to be the first one to propose marriage? In fact, in most relationships a woman initiates marriage talk.
There are many men who are afraid of marriage, since it involves lots of practical aspects along with planning (both socially and financially), so they will bide their time even if they’re committed to the relationship. Check out a few ways to ask your boyfriend to marry you.
1. Ask him why he hasn’t asked you to marry him yet
First of all, ask your boyfriend why he hasn’t asked you to marry him yet. Make sure you get a specific answer to your question, since it may clarify his standpoint. If your guy tells you that he hasn’t considered possibility of marriage, then ask him if he’s committed to the relationship.
2. Don’t be so dramatic about it
Really, girls, the last thing you want to do is to go on your knees and ask him to marry you in a public place. It’s quite normal for men to do such things, but coming from you it will make your boyfriend go as red as a beet. It’s better to discuss this topic when you’re in a private place.
3. Don’t be too needy
If you display any form of neediness or dependence, your guy may find it repulsive subconsciously. The guys don’t like the needy and clingy girls. And you should stop the needy behavior before it ends your relationship. So try to play hard to get, but make sure you don’t overdo it.
4. Be playful when you ask him about marriage
It’s important to keep a playful attitude when you ask your boyfriend about marriage, even if you’re nervous or edgy about his reaction. You can say something like ‘When do I get to call you my husband?’ or ‘So Mr. (name) when are you planning to marry me?’
5. Let him know that you want to get married
Many men start thinking seriously about marriage when they see that the woman has made up her mind about it. So go ahead and tell your guy that you want to get married and settle down. Who knows? Maybe he is waiting for the right moment, you will never know unless you ask him!

6. Don’t pressure him too much
Ladies, if you want your boyfriend to run, keep pressuring him to get married. If you put emotional pressure on your man it might backfire later when he’ll blame you for problems in the marriage. Try to put some indirect pressure by telling him that your parents are looking forward to see you married as soon as possible.
7. Talk about the practical aspects
There are a few practical aspects of marriage to be considered that you may not have thought of. There are social issues, such as meeting with the families, and financial issues such as getting a house, a car and other necessities.
Maybe your boyfriend worries about one of these issues. Don’t ignore the practical aspects of marriage, discuss it and help him feel comfortable about it.
