Ladies, why not take advantage of this Leap Year? After all you won't get another chance for a while! This could be your year to pop that all important question.
If your 'would be’ other half is slow off the mark then why not take full advantage of that old leap year tradition on this February 29th.
Years ago, as the story goes, St. Patrick was persuaded by St. Bridget to allow women to ask their men for their hand in marriage, and although he originally agreed to allow this every seven years, she also managed to persuade him that four years would be a much better idea. Hence, the famous ladies leap year marriage proposal was born!
Back in medieval times, if the man was to refuse such an offer of marriage it is said he had to pay a forfeit; one pound and a pair of gloves or silk gown, none the less! So, that said, taking into account inflation, if your loved one was to refuse your proposal you could invoke this ancient custom and end up with a new wardrobe and a tidy sum to boot!
