Backstory of Leap Day proposals
According to Bridal Guide, St. Bridget was airing her frustrations about women not being allowed to propose while speaking to St. Patrick and they decided to strike up a deal.

The story goes that St. Patrick suggested women would have the right to propose every seven years, but St. Bridget brought it down to every four years. 

They further stated that the more likely scenario is that because 29 February is considered a ‘bonus’ day, people began to believe that the traditional rules in life did not apply.
