He asked my dad for his blessing about a week ago, then told me the next day (my dad wouldn’t say a word to me about it, he’s good at keeping secrets). BF said he would have asked my mom but she wasn’t home when he dropped by.
Now I am waiting, waiting…how long after asking the parents do they normaly drop the question? I’m a tiny bit antsy now.

My husband proposed about a week after he went up to ask my parents for their blessing. I have no idea what is “typical” though.
Either way, that’s still pretty exciting! Good luck lady.

Can’t really tell you what to expect, but my fiance proposed about a month after he went to ask my parents.

I think the pressue is on once the parents are asked for the SO: if they take a while after asking the parents might think “what’s the hold up”, and if the lady knows permission/blessing has been given, if there’s a long wait she might go insane! I think generally they propose shortly after.

@Cordellia: DH asked my Dad on a Sunday and proposed on a Friday!

My DH took 4 months to propose after asking for my parents permission. It was torture! I’m guessing that waiting that long is not typical. My dad let it slip that he asked permission on a trip home.
He had a decent reason for waiting though. He wanted to surprise me by custom designing my ring. When he met with my parents, he wanted to get their opinion on different ring designs before he had it made. Although I had given him “general” guidelines, he wanted to ask my mom if she thought I would like the ring.
I know it’s so difficult to wait, but trust that he will propose soon!

@Cordellia: FI asked my dad two days before we left for our “engagement trip” I didnt know we were getting engaged or that he asked. I didnt find out he asked him til after he proposed and told me when and where and how I kept interrupting him lol oops! He proposed at the end of our trip in Vegas 🙂 Crazy thing is that our hotel room door was across from the upstairs wall of the wedding chapel! I was joking to FI the whole time….who knew!

@Cordellia: How exciting for you, pre-congratulations! I was in the same boat, but my FI asked my parents about 4-5 months ago!!!
He let me choose my ring though.. which has taken me this long. My proposal should be coming this weekend while we’re away!
