    @jo.lee: I think in that context “to” works.  If it didn’t say “of their daughter” I would say that “and” works.

    i agree with @HappyCrickets: with the wording “of their daughter,” “to” is the natural flow of words

    I say AND. As an example you’d say ‘the union of north and south’, not ‘the union of north to south’.

    I think i’m in the “to” camp here . . .

    I’m in the “and” camp. I don’t think that you can create a union of one thing TO another. You create a union between one thing AND another. The “their daughter” part is irrelevant–it’s essentially an adjective phrase.

    Since you say of their daughter, you have to use “to”. If you used “and” it would be saying you and your Fiance are both their daughter and with just makes no sense.
