Women Are Sharing The Reasons They Rejected A Marriage Proposal

The women who have said no are now sharing their reasons via Reddit and honestly, we don’t blame them.  1. “Youth. I dated an older guy for three years off and on between the ages of 17 and 19. He was ready to settle down and get married. I knew I was too young, so I declined […]

The women who have said no are now sharing their reasons via Reddit and honestly, we don’t blame them. 

1. “Youth. I dated an older guy for three years off and on between the ages of 17 and 19. He was ready to settle down and get married. I knew I was too young, so I declined his proposal. After that, we were off for good.” – @Trixie6102

2. “It was out of nowhere, with sex being the motivation behind the proposal.” – @mystical-heart

3. “His proposal was literally, ‘We’ll get married, you’ll drop out of uni and quit your job and we’ll have kids’. I wasn’t as adamantly sure I don’t want kids back then, but burning my career to the ground was and is a hell to the no.” – @ExcitableHamster

4. “I knew he wanted children. I didn’t. So I saved him.” –@rosanna4

5. “I was about to break up with him and he knew it. He was manipulative AF and it was a toxic on and off relationship for multiple years. When I started telling him, he interrupted me with, ‘But I got a ring!’ My head snapped faster than the speed of sound I’m pretty sure… I still broke up with him because I knew it was just another manipulation tactic.” – @Slightly0ddd

6. “He proposed the week he graduated. I hadn’t graduated yet. We hadn’t even decided on where or if we would live together once I did. It seemed more like a Hail Mary to keep the relationship than an actual proposal. I told him we should see how this all works out first.” – @sexrockandroll

7. “He was a serial marrier. He’d been married twice (we were in our early 30s) and divorced twice. After we split up he got married for the third time a few years later.” – @MessyHighlands

8. “He proposed sooner than we were both ready because my depression was bad, and he wanted to give me something I could be happy about. We talked about it and ended up getting engaged several months later when we were actually ready and in a better place.” – @KalopsiaContrast

9. “We were too young and neither of us was independent of our parents yet. I didn’t give a hard no, I just gave a, ‘not yet’.” – @theinfamousj

10. “I told him I was breaking up with him because he hadn’t proposed to me. He turned around and proposed.” – @teriyakireligion
