He didn’t ask my dad, my dad started badgering him and that was about a year before he finally proposed. Apparently he intended to ask on our 6 year anniversary and things happened, then he was going to ask for xmas and money happened, and he finally asked toward the end of February.

He proposed a week after talking to my parents. But he had the ring for over 2 months at that point.

He proposed the day after he spoke to them. To be fair, we live overseas and he wanted to speak to them in person. And he wanted to propose while we were home (so he could have both families there for a surprise celebratory dinner afterwards).

He bought a ring first ( 1.5 months before asking parents). 10 days after he asked parents and got permission, he proposed! I had no clue he talked to them or had a ring( will make a custom one together). Great surprise

One week After, but he already had the ring. We live in a different country from my parents and he engineered a visit before taking me away for a birthday weekend surprise.

I think a week? It might have been two weeks. He had the ring for 3 weeks total before he proposed.

He waited about four months, but waited to buy the ring until they said yes. So even after getting their blessings, he had to pick out the diamond, setting, actually get the ring, etc. Your Fiance may be doing the same!

dashingdaisy:  My husband called the day he was going to propose. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

I had a friend whose (now) fiance waited almost 2 years (!!!) to propose after asking her parents. Needless to say, it drove everyone in the family crazy. There are all kinds of situations!

I don’t think SO will ask my dad, but who knows.
