Female TV Characters Who Proposed to Their Boyfriends

In today's TV landscape, the lack of strong female characters is no longer an issue. There are plenty of shows that know how to portray powerful women, from Game of Thrones to Scandal, The Vampire Diaries to Veronica Mars. It isn’t a stretch to say that the TV heroine has evolved over the years. She’s no longer just a nagging wife or a trophy for the male protagonist to win; she’s complex and relatable.

Strong women, despite being flawed, are now building empires and taking control of their own lives, without the help of anyone. As the theme song to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt goes, "these females are strong as hell!" It’s no wonder that these ladies aren't afraid to take the lead when it comes to matters of the heart, as well. Presenting: this round up of fan-favorite female TV characters who proposed to their boyfriends. 

When most people think of a marriage proposal, they picture a man down on one knee. (Fewer people picture a Burger King parking lot and a woman who is several months pregnant, but to each their own). The kick-ass leading ladies below don’t care about the norm. More importantly, they aren’t afraid of being vulnerable.

These women know what they want and they go for it, instead of patiently waiting for their boyfriends to buy them a ring. Because, ultimately, building a life together is more important to them than who gets to make the big romantic gesture. Check out this list of female characters who proposed to men and get ready to swoon over these inspiring, romantic, and driven women.
