Since 2012 is a leap year (a year that contains one extra day which is February 29th, and comes once every 4 years), why not make it all that more special and propose to your man?
Traditionally speaking, women used to propose to men in leap years only. In the Middle Ages, a man who turns down a proposal on a leap year had to give the woman who proposed a kiss and a silk gown! (Getting a “no” might not be that bad after all!)
But in these days, women are proposing regardless the year being a leap year or not. So why not take charge this year by proposing to your partner?
