Marriage Proposal

We await the moment when our beloved kneels before us and asks the magic question. This is the moment that we have been waiting for our entire lives. We can't help but to feel giddy with excitement when we think about it.
It would be best, of course, if everything took place according to the script that we had previously put in our heads, however, we don't know how to turn this into reality. We consider all pros and cons, we think about costs, different scenarios. When we decide, full of joy and hope, we want to make sure that our engagement then doesn't just become nothing more than a formality. We gather in a group of loved ones and announce our decision. We can also choose a more modern one, which simply changes the Facebook status. And how does the tradition comes to all this? How much our customs differ culturally?
Our customs definitely differ culturally when it comes to engagements and announcing them. In some cultures, it is tradition to gather a group of loved ones together and announce the engagement. While in other cultures, it is more modern to simply change your Facebook status. It is important to consider all pros and cons before making a decision on how to announce your engagement.
The most stressful moment for a man is the very fact of asking for hand before partner's relatives he doesn't really know very well. This is according to old European customs where the future groom should give flowers to his girlfriend and other ladies on the guest list. A very similar custom prevails in Morocco. The future spouse hands the chosen heart a ring. Of course, other people from the immediate surroundings of the young couple are present during the engagement.
Men are now choosing romantic places to propose, where they are alone with their partner.
Shinto is an ancient religion that is the starting point for the country of cherry blossoms. It is a religion that is based on the idea of worshiping nature and ancestors.
In Japan, one of the dominant religions is Shinto. The official first meeting of the young takes place in the presence of matchmakers. It is after this meeting that is decided if the match is successful. The next is less formal, but with a proposal of marriage and an official engagement. An engagement gift is not always a diamond ring - in Japan, on this occasion, the Groom gives his beloved a pouch with cash or linen white threads that symbolize a common goal. The Bride and Groom also receive gifts from other guests present at the party. Most often it is tea, sake, clothes, everyday items.
According to tradition, a man asks for a woman's hand in marriage. However, more and more ladies are asking the famous question - will you marry me? Female marriage proposals are the most widespread in the Scandinavian countries. And not because of custom, but rather because of equality. In Finland, not only a woman wears a ring, but also her fiancé. Jewelry is more like wedding rings. The couple must wear them at all times.
The entire engagement process in the Algerian tradition is quite time consuming. If the future fiancé is accepted, then the real spectacle begins - one in which the whole village is often involved. Delegations are sent out (sometimes consisting of up to several hundred people) and the head of the delegation asks for the hand of the girl from the chairman of her team. The speech can last for more than an hour. As a sign of acceptance of the marriage proposal, the head of the bride's delegation takes a sip of the coffee she previously served and then the house sounds with a "zalghuta".
