What is the proper way to make a marriage proposal to a Ukrainian girl? In Ukraine is it custom to be engaged to a woman first? Should you write it down first? Does anyone know how to write a proposal to marry a Ukrainian woman?
In my time in Ukraine I have proposed a lot of things to women in the eight years I have been dating here. I have proposed to marry two times. I have witnessed a few not so glamorous proposals in Ukraine and some very emotional ones. The first one that comes to mind is when I was in Lviv, a city in the western part of the country. I was coming home from the gym but I wanted to get some cardio in. I decided to walk up the steps of the High Castle The High Castle Hill, 413 m (1355 feet) above sea level, is the best vantage point for a panoramic view of Lviv. The base of the steel flag mast in the center of the viewing area shows the cardinal points to help in orientation. This is one of the highest spots of the low range of hills stretching through Lviv and across the border into Poland. Read More
When I came to the first steps of High Castle there was an odd young man walking in front of me. He had something in his jacket, he would walk up a few steps then back down.
I was a little nervous about what he was going to do, so I stayed back a bit from him. What usually take 15 to 20 minutes to walk up took me almost 45 minutes. When we were about to the top he came running down towards me. I noticed in his jacket there were some flowers. Now I was starting to understand what was going on, I walked as fast as I could to the top. When I arrived there were two men and a young woman on top. The young man came up so fast got on his knee in front of the girl. He asked her if she would marry him, a long pause occurred. Finally, she said yes they hugged and kiss everything was good. Very romantic some would think.
I was with a client, Mark that met a woman with my help, they knew one another for 6 days. He came to me this morning to ask me what do I think about him asking Evgenia to marry him?
Being a little apprehensive I ask are you sure this is what you both want? I knew this man he was not a guy that did something without thinking about it. I said let’s go to lunch the three of us so I can feel out how she is thinking about you. I knew they would make a good couple, I saw how they would be with each other very loving. Mark treated her with much respect, I could see the feelings he had for her were real. But was this too soon? I have heard of other men proposing to a Ukrainian woman only to be turned down because it was too soon.
