We live in an age where women are more empowered now than ever. We are smarter, make more money and have more opportunities than past generations.
These opportunities are a result of hard work and a shift in attitude throughout the years. I cannot help but wonder how all of these changes impact our relationships and the way we love.
Women no longer need men to care for them financially. The average age for women to get married gets later and later.
It’s no longer inappropriate for a woman to ask for a guy’s number or ask him on a date. (This was unheard of in my grandmother’s day!) In fact, most guys I know say they like it when a girl knows what she wants and goes after it.
Will we start to ask men to become our boyfriends and then eventually our husbands?
I don’t have an answer to this question. I believe that women should have the option to do whatever they wish.
The girly, romantic part of me wants to believe that I was wired with a certain desire for a guy to pursue me and place a ring on my finger. But, then my ambitious, feministic side kicks in and I start to think about how awesome it would be to ask someone to marry you.
Why do so many young women day dream about their weddings and future husbands? Are we just products of our society and upbringing, or is it a real desire?
Why don’t more women ask men to be their boyfriends?
Most girls would never even consider asking a guy to be their boyfriend let alone their husband-there is nothing wrong with that. But, I would like to live in a society that accepts women who do.
