I have long been suspect that my BF will be proposing soon before or during our cruise next week. BF, his mother and I have long been talking about rings and about a month ago he told me that he has the diamond and picked a setting
Today, his parent were over for the holiday weekend and my father and step mother came over to visit. My dad announced after two hours that he was going to step outside with BF for a moment to help him bring something upstairs. They left the apartment alone for several minutes and when they returned they didn’t bring anything upstairs with them like they claimed they were doing. They were VERY chatty with each other after that, much more than usual.
They’ve never gone off on their own alone for a conversation. And I’ve been wondering when this would happen because BF has always said he would ask my father’s permission first.
I’m really excited! Could it be happening in December?? We’ll see soon!

Although this particular custom isn’t my thing at all, it does mean that it’s coming soon for you!
Congratulations. It won’t be long now, you’ll probably be engaged for Christmas 🙂

Definitely sounds suspicious! 😀
My DH also asked my dad for my hand 🙂 He lied and told me he was going to visit his grandma :p but really he drove to my dads house.

@HannahGrace: Does it matter?
That’s so exciting, OP. FI’s parents are awful secret keepers, so he knew right away that I’d met up with them without him. Thankfully he’s not always the brightest crayon in the box, so he didn’t put it together until after I asked him.

It does matter. Adult relationships require an adult commitment. I hope this person isn’t getting into something she can’t handle, if she’s relying on parental permission.

@HannahGrace: You seem to be in a bad mood tonight, posting rude things on every thread.
If something isn’t your taste, don’t post on it. Don’t be snarky or rude to other posters because you don’t like their choices.

@HannahGrace: It’s not relying on permission. Some people are close to their father, and they like the idea of their future husband having “that conversation” with their dad.

@mrspinesol: agreed, FI asked my father’s blessing and I loved that he did that. I was 21 when we got engaged.

@HannahGrace: Ugh can you just not? Thanks.
OP, this sounds like such exciting news! FYI, I am well over 18 and my SO still asked for permission. More of a traditional type thing. Congrats!
