That is exciting, my Fiance didn’t ask for my dads permission or blessing before proposing, he said it just wasn’t his style (he’s not overly traditional really), so when we told all my family, my Dad could be included in the surprise moment as well πŸ™‚

My dad was still extremely pleased when he found out, I personally think it’s an outdated tradition as people just expect it to happen these days. I believe the asking of the fathers permission was back in the days where couples got engaged much sooner before even having a close relationship with each other, as it was all meant to start after getting married.

Keep us updated πŸ™‚

My dad and I had talked before about I wanted my guy to propose already. Dad agreed that it had been a good long time and that he would be ok with it if my guy did propose. Well, my dad brought it up to my guy the next time they were together. Dad said “you have my approval to marry my little girl.” my guy and I talked about that later that day, and he said ” that’s all I needed!”

Hee hee! πŸ™‚ I’m still waiting but I have a timeline now

My husband never asked my father either, we’re adults and don’t need permission. But it’s always a plus to know the parents like the man you’ve chosen πŸ™‚

@Audrey2: This is so lovely!

And this: my dad found it weird that a couple would talk about getting engaged before it happened, while I would find the opposite really weird! I totally agree with you.  My parents think the same.  Strange how times have changed.

That’s really interesting! My parents talked about getting engaged, and even went ring shopping together. This is early 80s, though.

How cute!  I hope my SO talks to my dad, not so much for permission but for his blessing.  Hope you’re engaged soon!

Cute story, and I share the same vision as you. I want to surprise my parents instead of SO asking for their blessing. The minute my parents met my SO they fell in love with him. My Dad and SO are so similar they became instant friends which is too cute!! We both know our parents will be over the moon when it happens, so no need to ask for approval, they gave him the thumbs up on the first meeting πŸ™‚

That is a cute story…I know my SO wouldn’t ask my dad.  Though he told him he would take care of me.  Which meant a lot to me. πŸ™‚

That sounds lovely. And it’s lovely about your friend too – maybe the engagement excitement will some day soon be something the two of you can share πŸ™‚
