    My Fiance asked my mom, and took it a step further and asked her if my dad was alive if he would also receive his blessings. it meant the world to me!

    Didn’t ask anyone for a blessing – just asked me. Didn’t have a ring when he asked- I didn’t care.

    We’ve been married almost 38 years.

    He never asked for my parents’ blessing, and I’m glad he didn’t. I love my parents, but they have very little say in my adult life, if any at all.

    He asked my parents for the ring since he knew I wanted to wear my late Grandmother.  He did ask for their blessing at the same time though <3

    None of those. He didn’t ask for blessing because all he needed was mine

    My SO and I were visiting my parents and my father and him took a trip to the farm about 15 minutes away while I hung back with my family. I thought 110% he would ask my dad while they were on their adventure. A few weeks later he confessed he missed a perfect bonding opportunity to ask. I asked him how come he didnt? And he said because he didn’t have the ring yet. So apparently, for some odd reason, he wanted to HAVE the ring to show my father before/while asking.

    No blessing. I make my own choices.

    I feel like this is such an antiquated tradition.  My husband didn’t ask my parents at all, he only asked me  I’m so glad he never asked my parents.  He did ask me to marry him in front of my parents on Christmas Eve, and I know that my dad thought it was the COOLEST THING EVER haha.
