Should Women Propose Marriage?

Why shouldn’t women propose? I see many you used a biblical principle about marriage from Proverbs about a man who finds a wife, so here’s some enlightening on the book of Ruth. Naomi coerced Ruth into proposing to Boaz after she learned that Ruth had already caught his eyes (essentially his heart) while Ruth worked his fields. In Hebrew culture to throw a covering over a woman signifies marriage/engagement. Naomi instructed Ruth to dress in her finest clothing, wear her best perfume, go to the where Boaz was after he was drunk and tired, lay at his feet (which in Hebrew means genitals), and ask him to cover her.  Hence,  Ruth asked Boaz to marry her by way of cultural gestures and possible sexual advances. (Research it if you question it.)
