Q&A

In Ruth’s day, wasn’t it presumptuous of a woman to propose to a man?

Question:

My women&#039;s Bible study group is working on the book of Ruth, and we are perplexed by the scene in chapter 3 in which Ruth effectively proposes to Boaz at Naomi&#039;s bidding. For the time period, wouldn&#039;t it have been presumptuous for a woman to ask a man to marry her?<br /> <br /> <br />
