My boyfriend is Hawiaiin and tells me that I have to ask him

Customer Question

My boyfriend is Hawiaiin and tells me that I have to ask him to marry me and give him a ring. He even tells me what his ring size is. Is it customary in Hawaii for the woman to ask the man for his hand in marriage?

No, that is not true of ancient Hawaiian culture and after the introduction of Christianity by Christian missionaries they followed the same traditions as the west regarding proposal and marriage.
