thanks everyone!! I know its not a must to ask, I do feel it is/was important to me tho. For those who did ask, what was the reaction of your dad? Was he just as happy or did he expect to have a part?
@Blush.Champagne: thats awesome!! I bet if my dad went with my bf he would have ended up buying my mom a new ring as well lol.
Thats great! We live in an apartment above his grandparents so they all knew before it as well.
That is the coolest way ever!!! Your dad must have been so happy!

@brandybelle: My fiancee didn’t ask, and until I read your reply, it had always irked me a little bit. I feel much better about it now 🙂

@bella731: Awe that would have been sweet! For her you both to have new rings 🙂
I’m really close with my dad and he is very involved in both my Fiance and my life so I think he expected to be involved in the process to some degree. I’m glad your Fiance asked your father for his blessing on your marriage. It may be “traditional” and not a must for everyone but I understand you being excited about it as it is a sweet and respectful gesture.

My Fiance talked to my dad before proposing. It wasn’t so much “asking” as it was just letting him know. He told me all about it afterwards and my dad said some very touching things to him. I had never considered talking to my dad as something he needed to do, but now I’m really glad he did because it definitely brought them closer together. My dad is usually not one to share his feelings but it means a lot to me that he was able to do so with my Fiance.

I supppose he didn’t ask permission, but I guess he asked for my parents’ blessing. I thought it was sweet.

Mine did! My mom said it was silly and he didn’t have to but I think it’s a very sweet gesture. I wasn’t there obviously, but he said it was a nice moment 🙂

Fiance didn’t ask my father for permission because I don’t see my father, but he did tell my mum the night beforehand and asked for her blessing I thought it was sweet. He also told my granny beforehand as well.

@Blush.Champagne: yeah, she just got a new ring 2 years ago tho. I am also close with both of my parents. Although I dont live at home I talk to them on a daily basis and see them every week.
My Fiance actually texted my mom to ask if they were going to be home that night, so she had an idea and was betting with my dad on why my bf (at the time) wanted to come over. My mom was of course right lol 🙂 After when my Fiance told me and talking with my dad I think my dad was more excited than me. He was pretty much jumping up and down with joy when he asked! haha

My Fiance sat both my parents down and asked them together – he told me that he was planning on asking my dad, and I was the one who suggested including my mom. They both really appreciated it – my dad actually told my mom that he’d never regretted not getting *her* dad’s permission until my Fiance asked him for his.

My Fiance asked for my dad’s blessing and my dad directed him to my mom, the head of the household. My mom then went on to ask him a zillion questions….10 hours later we were engaged.

He asked. I (and my dad) would be upset if he didn’t and he knew this long before planning to propose.

My father’s not in the picture so my Fiance asked my mom for permission. We’re a pretty old-fashioned family, and his isn’t, so my mom (and I) were soooo impressed that he did. Even more impressed, considering we’ve been together almost 8 years and he and my mom are already pretty close.

Yup. We are both from traditional families like that.
