Happy Leap Day! Watch Sweet Videos of Women Proposing to Men

Woman proposes to man for leap day

According to an old Irish legend, St. Patrick and St. Bridget struck a deal in which women would be permitted to propose to men every four years on Leap Day. That tradition continues on YouTube. 

This Leap Day role reversal became a tradition in many European countries. In fact, historically, if a man refused a woman’s hand on Leap Day, he had to pay some sort of fine. One custom had the man buying the rejected woman 12 pairs of gloves, so she could then hide her ring-less shame of still being single.

These days, such reparations are probably out of the question. But Leap Day still provides women a unique opportunity to take on all the responsibility — and risk of rejection — that is a properly executed marriage proposal.

Due to the risky nature of the reverse marriage proposal, there aren’t a whole lot of videos of women proposing to men out there. But we were able to find some, which you can check out below. With this being the first Leap Day in the age of HD camera phones, there should be a lot more videos of this phenomenon by the time Leap Day 2016 comes around.
