He talked to both of my parents about his intentions before the proposal, but I think we were all surprised at the timing… We talked to our children seperately and then together before we began wearing our engagement rings.

My daughters are 19, 20 and 22. Mike calledveach one and asked fo their permission and blessing. Then helped them surprise me by getting my 20 yo to FL for our annual family reunion and once they all arrived he proposed with them there.
My wholebfamily. 72 people that weekend knew before he asked.
My mom passed away 11 years ago and no father in the picture.

When Z asked me to marry him, and I accepted we were just kind of lingering along the shore and he said, “well what do you think about it?”I nodded and he said “so you think that will be allright?” and I said yeah and he said, “Well your daddy seems to think it will all right.” I said, “Awwww you asked my daddy?” (because number 1 did NOT, of course my dad would have probably said no way. lol) I thought it was a very honorable thing to do. My dad had out of the blue mentioned one day that Z was a pretty nice fella and I said yeah he is wondering why the randomness, but knowing my dad it was not off base so didn’t think anything else about it. Then it all became clear.

Yes he did, I was there when he did it, it was more of a, asking for his blessing sort of thing, because he had already asked me.

There will be no asking of my dad. Or my mom. My grandma raised me. SO has to ask my kids though. My best friend jokes and says he has to ask the dog, cause I’ve had him the longest LOL.

there will be no asking of anyone but me. DH1 did not ask for permission, nor will Fiance. my parents’ answer to such a question would be to say, “isn’t that something you should as her?” and then they’d promptly lose most of their respect for him. it’s not the way my family operates. they can give their blessing or not when we tell them our plans, but i am my own woman and don’t need anyone’s permission to marry. not my son’s either. (not that he’d say much of anything either way…he’s currently 14mo and will be two and a half when we tie the knot, lol.)

We did the opposite- I actually asked my parents if they were ok with me living with Mountain Man. My mother said ” at 45 you are asking my permission to move in with a man” she laughed so hard I could hear it from Whidbey Island to Philadelphia.
When we told her to plan a Vegas Vacation this summer she was quite pleased, howevre. I think she secretly wanted us to be “legit”

EX did not, Fiance just did this weekend!

Ex did not and we were young. I was 22 and he was 23. My current Fiance did, and I was 29 and he was 46.

Ummm long story short, since my mom pretty much raised me, he wanted to talk to her. She got all mad at me for wanting to get married, so that put a damper on things lol. First she was happy about it, then she was mad. I still don’t know what her problem is. He did ask my dad, and my dad is SUPER excited about it. My dad calls me to talk to him! lol He also talked to my step-mom, since my dad told her. I’m planning on having lunch with his mom to talk to her as well.
