There's no rule that forbids women to propose to their men, but these celebrities broke the tradition and popped the question to their partners.
Halle Berry and David Justice's romance escalated fast after a reporter told the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" star that the former athlete was her fan in 1992. Halle made the first move and told the reporter to give David her number.
After a few months of dating, Halle made the first move once again and decided to pop the question. David said yes and they tied the knot in early 1993. However, they got divorced five years later, with Halle claiming that she almost killed herself due to depression during their marriage.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, who tied the knot in 2013, refused to get married until same-sex marriage became legal. After the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, Kristen immediately took to Twitter to propose to Dax. ".@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove," she wrote.
The "Parenthood" alum, who was also excited with the new law, accepted her proposal. "DOMA is dead. Prop 8 is dead. Now let's bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to Life!!!!" Dax wrote.

Pink proved that she's the real bada** when she asked former motorcycle racer Carey Hart to marry her in 2005 during his race in California. The "Just Give Me a Reason" songstress was helping Carey's crew when she suddenly lifted a sign that read, "Will You Marry Me? Serious!"
Pink actually tried to propose to Carey during his previous race, but "he just kept going, and I'm like 'That f**ker.' " However, Pink refused to give up. "[Carey] actually didn't look the sign, he was just concentrated, doing his own little thing. Next race, at lap 3, I said 'Look at the sign!' and he did. He said yes," she continued, before adding, "Actually he said, 'Are you kidding me?!' "
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline wouldn't have gotten married if she hadn't candidly asked him first back in 2004. "It was about three weeks ago, and we were on an airplane to New York from Ireland," Britney recalled in an interview with PEOPLE. "I was really happy. Kevin was with me, so I'd had a lot of fun on the tour."
"We were a couple hours into the flight, and we'd been talking the whole time, stuff about life, wanting to have kids, the future and everything like that," she continued. "Then all of a sudden I said, 'What if you want to get married?' And I kind of went from there to asking him if he would marry me. I asked him."
Kevin then revealed that he initially said no because he "thought the guy was supposed to ask the girl." He eventually repeated her question, and Britney accepted his proposal.
Back in 2009, Jennifer Hudson proposed to David Otunga with a ring five months after the former professional wrestler popped the question. "He proposed to me on my birthday and he would complain that he didn't have an engagement ring," Jennifer said during an appearance on "The Talk".
" 'You have a ring, but how are they going to know I'm taken?' So I had a ring made and then I gave it to him as his birthday gift on his birthday, and the way that I gave it to him was like, 'Now will you marry me!' " she continued, before adding, "So I kind of proposed to him, too."
Diane Von Furstenberg
Years after her failed marriage to German prince Egon Von Furstenberg, Diane Von Furstenberg fell in love with businessman Barry Diller. The fashion designer decided to propose to him in 2001 as his birthday present.
"One year I didn't know what to give him for his birthday," Diane said in an interview with O Magazine. "And I called him and said, 'You know, if you want, for your birthday I'll marry you.' And he said, 'Let me see if I can arrange it.' " She continued, "It's what he always says, and he always arranges it. A week later we married at City Hall, and he gave me-this is so Barry-he gave me 26 wedding rings, for the 26 years we had not been married."
