Kneel down before I accept your marriage proposal

The convention in the Western world, and as depicted in many movies, is for a man to kneel down when proposing to his lady, especially if done in public. But, what happens when a guy doesn’t kneel down when proposing?

Well, below is a short excerpt from a marriage proposal video (involving two African lovers in Africa) that made rounds recently on social media, and that has divided opinions among our African brothers and sisters.

A lady refused a guy’s public proposal because he refused to kneel down while proposing. The lady says that’s embarrassing and cannot fathom why he wouldn’t kneel down for her. The guy says kneeling down is not what proves he loves her, and in any case, during church weddings, Pastors don’t ask the groom to kneel down before his bride when exchanging vows (putting on the ring).

This is the matter they have been trying to settle since ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™ˆ. Your opinion may help our dear African brother and sister who apparently were madly in love, until the proposal ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚.

  1. Iโ€™m choking on laughter. This is I who would possibly run off if a guy proposed to me in public. I love low-key stuff. Kneeling really isnโ€™t proof that he loves you. And who made it an obligation for men to kneel and propose. People are making movies and social media get into their heads.

    1. I can really imagine your beloved one his knees and you running off. That will be a nice picture to frame, lol.

      Yeah, very true observation! We let a lot of junk enter our heads these days ๐Ÿค”
