My SIL just got engaged on Friday and it got me thinking about this question. I know some people really want their boyfriends to ask their dads and others dont care. Did he ask your dad? Did you want him to?

He asked my parents, and yes it was very important to me–not that it would have stopped me if they’d said no. I just think it shows a certain amount of respect.

He did ask my dad and I was very pleased.
My dad really really loves my Fiance and even though we are all modern people, and it’s not really necessary…I think it is respectful and sweet as a gesture.
My Fiance told me later that my dad was crying on the phone…so cute. poor dad…i can’t imagine how he’ll be on the wedding day!

He did, and I loved it 🙂 He knew I wanted him to, and that my parents would REALLY like it. They wouldn’t have been upset if he didn’t, and wouldn’t have mentioned it to me… but I knew it would score him extra points. It also gave him a chance to bond a bit with my dad, just one-on-one, which never happens. So I really liked that.

I picked the last one, but if it had been an option I could have picked “He did not and I didn’t want him to.” If he had asked my dad, it would have been a sign that he didn’t know me well enough to get married, ha!

I would say other, because I would have been pissed if he asked my Dad. I can appreciate how others view it in a different light, but I feel like it’s our relationship, I’m 29 years old, and who I marry is my decision. And I’m not that close with my Dad so it would seem kind of strange.

My Fiance wanted to ask my dad, I didn’t really care. Turns out my dad told him months before he proposed that he thought the whole idea of someone asking him if they could marry me was silly, so in the end my Fiance did not ask him.

He asked my Dad for his blessing. He took him out the day before he proposed. He already had the ring and the plans, it was basically just out of respect to get his blessing. I know that my Dad really appreciated it. He has 3 daughters and with all of us and my Mom he usually feels like he’s the last person to know anything so it meant a lot to him that Fiance cared enought to talk to him about it and he loved that he was “in on it” when no one else was!

I knew how important it was to my dad as I do come from a very traditional family and I am the only girl. DH knew this as well so he did ask my dad before he proposed.

My Fiance asked my Dad. My brother-in-law asked my Father as well and sort of set the standard.

I know that my dad LOVES my Fiance more than he loves me LOL but it was still nice of him to ask him!

He asked my brother/dad via phone (they were both out of state) and I completely wanted him to… <3 melts my heart when I think of my brother telling me the story after his proposal…

He asked my dad the morning he proposed and I really wanted him to.
It was more asking for his blessing then really asking permission. My dad would have never said no. My dad grew up a southern gentleman so it really meant a lot to him that my Fiance called him.
Since it was so important to my dad, it was really important to me that Fiance asked. (I’ve always been daddy’s little girl). I am also the oldest of 2 girls so he still sees me as his “little girl” sometimes.

My husband asked both of his parents and both of my parents for their blessings before proposing. I thought it was sweet, although I didn’t really care one way or another.
