There are women who will propose to a man, just like there are women who will ask a man out on a date.

Some people are more traditional, but others are not. If someone wants to propose marriage to their partner, they should and not worry about statistics or conventions.

When My fiance' and I became engaged, we'd already been together for a year and a half. In the beginning I had told him I didn't want to get married. I didn't even want to discus the matter. As time went by I became more and more sure that this was the man I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. He'd carefully hint around the subject but was too afraid to ask the question for fear of being rejected, so one day I told him how I felt about him and that I couldn't imagine my life with out him. When I asked him to Marry me he was so relieved! He didn't hesitate for a minute coming back with the answer "YES". We've been engaged for a little over a year and are due to marry April 16th. Everyday I am convinced that he is the one God intended me to share my life with.

What is the name for a woman who courts a man?

There is nothing unusual in a woman courting a man, although the convention is that it is the man who has to propose marriage. (And even then, convention can be defied.) If the woman in question is significantly older than the man she courts, then the current slang would call her a cougar. This term is more about the age difference than the courting, however. When a man courts a woman he is a "suitor". When a woman courts a man she is a "suitress".

When is it traditionally permitted for a woman to propose marriage to man?

This question is quite impertinent. I will do the best I can in answering this. Tradition is tradition. A woman proposing to a man is not tradition. That does not mean is not acceptable and that it is not done. Now as far as what is permitted as far a proposal has no jurisdiction to that type of event. No one needs a permission to propose to anyone. If you uncomfortable with all of this, you as well as anyone has the right to refuse.
