Proposal | Merisik

 

 

Merisik is similar to when the man proposes the woman of his dreams and gives her a promise ring. This is also the time their families will get to know each other better. He is always accompanied by the closest members of his family, bearing a simple ring called “Cincin Belah Rotan” or “Cincin Tanda” (Promise Ring) and some gifts.

 

Merisik and engagement are two different things. Merisik is done when the man and his family want to introduce themselves to her family and to get to know them better, while engagement is the tie between them to become husband and wife. Belah Rotan ring is given during Merisik, while a simple ring with a diamond or gemstone is given during an engagement.

Babak merisik bermula apabila calon lelaki memperkenalkan diri kepada ibu dan bapa pihak perempuan. Kebiasaannya pihak lelaki yang diwakili oleh ahli keluarga akan pergi berjumpa dengan keluarga pihak perempuan bagi menyatakan hajat kehadiran mereka.

 

Merisik dan bertunang adalah dua perkara yang berbeza. Majlis merisik adalah dilakukan apabila pihak lelaki mahu mengenali pihak perempuan dengan lebih dekat manakala majlis bertunang pula adalah ikatan perjanjian untuk menjadi suami isteri. Merisik diberikan cincin belah rotan atau “cincin tanda”, manakala bertunang pula diberikan cincin berbatu.
