    Leap Year Proposals

    Just for your info - and if youve been seeing threads ref engagements rings and stuff - the day for us girlies to pop the question is 29th Feb - leap year day itself! NOT VALENTINES DAY

    Leap Year Proposals
    Leap Year Day is the 29th February. The tradition in England is that a woman may propose marriage to the man of her choice on this day.
    This tradition originates from hundreds of years ago to the time when leap year day was not recognised in English law - the day was leapt over' and ignored which lead to the term 'leap year'.
    As the day had no legal status, it was considered reasonable to assume that traditions had no status. Women who were concerned about being left unmarried siezed this opportunity to propose.
    It was also thought that as the leap year day corrected the difference between the calendar year of 365 days and the time for the earth to complete an orbit of the sun which is 365 days and 6 hours, this was an opportunity for women to correct the one sided tradition that a man proposes marriage to a woman.
    29th February is the day for all women wishing to take advantage of this ancient tradition. Tradition says that an honourable man will not turn her down.

    tip for all males get a pre-nuptial for any marriage you enter into, treat it as you would do any financial undertaking. as the system is biased against you.
    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
    protect yourselves (and i dont mean wear a condom) for both males and females get a pre nuptial.

    got to see if he says yes yet!!!

    I quite like the idea of this, it's quite quirky and great to see it's still happening - one of my good friends had his partner propose this way, worked out well for them so far.
