The art of a marriage proposal is constantly changing, with elements dating back hundreds of years ago. As our society continues to evolve, we have started to move away from the tradition of men initiating the proposal and into a day and age when women are taking the lead on marriage proposals. In many different places around the world, there are special days dedicated to proposing similar to National Proposal Day here in the United States. On a leap year in Finland, women propose to their partner as a sign of good luck. In Greece, this does not happen because they view a leap year as a bad omen.
Many female celebrities have jumped on the proposal bandwagon, Britney Spears, Pink, Jennifer Hudson and even Halle Berry just to name a few! The LGBT community (lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders) are also getting in on unique and creative marriage proposals to their significant others as the age of the marriage proposal continues to grow.
