A story of a Chinese woman makes round on social media sites who boldly proposed marriage to her boyfriend while gifting him with a Harley Davidson motorbike and the joint ownership of their apartment.
According to Shanghaiist, the surreal proposal took place in the streets of Chengdu in Sichuan province. The woman, who was back from studying overseas, was wearing a wedding dress when she surprised her boyfriend with the wedding proposal and the two expensive gifts.
Later on, the woman explained why it was she who took the bold step of proposing instead of her boyfriend.
“Proposing isn’t the man’s job. Why should women wait around for the man to propose? I want to be more progressive. If you like someone, go for it. Time is not an issue; live life to the fullest,” she reportedly said.
The woman’s bold move was mostly well-received online, with many lauding her for being open and modern. At the same time, a few also chided her for being immodest and unconventional.
While the woman and her now-fiance remain unidentified, the former’s family are purportedly business people who are well-off.
