Didnt think young men still did this...

This Easter I was at my inlaws and was outside having a cigarette and my daughters boyfriend came out and started talking to me and finally said, " John, I love your daughter and want to know if its alright with you if I ask her to marry me" ....well that took me by suprise as i wanted to say hell no , but I was good about it and said I would be happy to have him marry my daughter...

hes a good kid and it was kind of nice that he asked me like that.....just didnt think guys still did it,,,,,

I'm probably going to do the same to my g/f's parents later on this year, or early next year. I know her mom wishes it would happen asap.
Her dad on the other hand is a state rep, and I've only met him one time.... so I don't know if I should even bother with him.

When my ex-husband proposed to me, he did ask both my parents before hand. Of course they hated him and told him no, he did it anyway.

And since I needed a date for my wedding, I accepted.

my older one, the 25 year old , 2 weeks ago she was involved in a rollover and crashed into a parked car. thankfully she was not hurt and her seatbelts saved her life ,,,,,I think the accident made him realize how much she means to him,,,,,,,,

Both of my sister's husbands did that. I told my boyfriend he has to in order to get on my father's good side. Haha.

I think guys think that father's are old fashioned or something so they need to. Congratulations though, glad she's okay. Have fun dishing out money for a wedding!

I actually just did that same thing right before I got engaged in december. I was more scared of telling her mom after I asked permission from her dad. I am a proper little southern boy though, still say "yes sir/ma'am" and "no sir/ma'am." I would get punished if I didn't mind my manners as a kid. It's sorta sad that people being respectful is surprising in this world.

Haven't seen you around here for awhile, Jack. Nice to have ya back. Congrats on the new son-in-law-to-be. I would also ask permission from a girl's father prior to asking her, but I don't see myself ever getting married anyway.

I asked my FIL beforehand because it shows respect and that's pretty heavily embedded in me.

When you see shows like the one on MTV where the parents find their kids alternate SO's (Parental Control?), it makes me nervous about the future of our Country. The way these SO's treat the parents is nothing short of obnoxious. And don't get me started on My Sweet 16.....

damn haven't seen you on here in a while... Welcome back!


anywhoo... the one occasion where I was serious about the girl... her father passed before I could ask... her mother is 100% Korean and speaks VERY little English... so I asked her older brother... He and I didn't see eye to eye on many things... but I think that just me asking solved a lot of our issues... now if only the girl would have stayed in one place long enough for me to ask her

It's def. a sign of respect. I asked my wife's father first. We'd dated for 4 years by that time and we got along pretty well....he was cool with it.

My wife's father is a deacon in a church...so I took him outside and asked him before she ever knew. Hell we were living together for the last 2 years he didn't like that to much....but his views changed after I did that.

I even told him if he disapproved I would wait untill he would. extra brownie points....
