Anyone planning to ask his or her loved one to marry them must take into account a number of important things. Often, people are rather stressed, so it is not uncommon to forget something. A marriage proposal (with or without a ring) is an important event that will determine the rest of your life. After all, you do not ask someone to marry you every day. In order for everything to go smoothly, we would like to give you a few facts about the proposal and the ring. These are things that you should definitely take into account.

Why do I have to ask her father for permission?

If you intend to propose to your beloved, you do not immediately make the marriage proposal and then slide an engagement ring on their finger. True to tradition, you first visit her parents and ask the father's permission to marry her. Of course you are as good as 100% sure that he will give you his daughter's hand, but it is and remains a beautiful tradition that should certainly be honoured.

How much should an engagement ring cost on average?

It is generally assumed that an engagement ring should be worth 2 months' wages. Of course, this is a target price, and you are free to decide how much you will spend on this diamond ring. Men who want to make an impression can completely let themselves go. Of course, there are also plenty of beautiful diamonds on the market for those with a more limited budget. After all, it is more about what your partner likes and less about the associated price tag.

And if you happen to be in a financial dip, that is not necessarily a big problem. Want to bet your partner will not care? Asking someone to marry you without a ring is also an option. In the end, it is more about the context and what you say than about the ring itself. The engagement ring can always come with some delay, or you can choose to get a fancier wedding ring.

How does a marriage proposal go with and without a ring?

How you propose to her, of course, is completely up to you. Our biggest tip is to take into account her personality and what she likes. For example: if your girlfriend is an introverted type, then you should not do the proposal publicly but rather in the intimacy of your own home. However, there are some elements that all marriage proposals have in common. For example, the man goes down on one knee, opens the box with the diamond engagement ring and asks the question: 'Will you marry me?'

If, on the other hand, you choose to propose without a ring, it is best to focus on what you will say. Whether there is a ring or not will not necessarily sway your partner; the words that you say will.
