Aw that’s sweet. I know my fiance was very nervous about talking to my father and in hind-sight I wish I would have known he was going to propose so I could have talked to his parents as well (there’s an eight year age gap between my fiance and I) because I think it would have helped smooth out the rough patches before hand instead of dealing with the questions now.

Yay for being progressive and equality. 

I’m curious though if his parents are also progressive and believe in gender equality.  I know my in laws would have thought I was quite presumptuous if I’d come to them about getting engaged before I was actually asked. 

I would maybe make it a bit more casual about how much you’ve enjoyed being included in their family, and love their son, and are looking forward to “officially” joining them.

My guy’s parents are so traditional….I bet it would freak them out.

I think it’s wonderful you are doing this and making it your own style!

sounds very sweet, and I’m sure his parents will be impressed! After we got engaged, I sent FH’s mom a card that basically said thank you for raising such a wonderful man and that I couldn’t wait to join her family. Since then, she’s loved me!! 😉

My husband asked my parents. They just responded “you didnt need to ask!!! of course!!!” but he asked both and I think that was great.

To be honest with you i cant really figure out what YOU are going to talk to HIS parents about (not being rude here…just seriously wondering!)

SO cool you’ll be talking to his parents about your intentions! I love the progressiveness. 🙂

ohh that is such a sweet idea! I dont know if I would ask permission of my in laws… but that said, they would just say “why are you asking?”

Good luck with it! Let us know how it goes

DD’s husband asked her dad and I, but it was really just a conversation between the three of us about how he feels about her and values her.  We all cried our eyes out and welcomed him to the family!
