My parents are divorced and my Fiance asked both my mom and my dad. Maybe as to sit down with her mom & step-dad and call her dad?

Ask both. I’m sure both her mother and father will be happy to be asked.

i agree with PPs, speak with her mum and step-dad in person and call her dad 🙂

@MrNavidson:  If it’s possible to have a meal with all 3 of them…(perhaps the dad can drive over to the parent’s side of town or meet halfway?) And ask all together?

If not, asking the parents (including step dad) first and maybe on same day or day after meet the dad to ask for blessing?

I think it should be done in person for both parents..

Ask both. That’s what my Fiance did because my parents are divorced and everyone was really happy with it.

I dont beleive in asking permission anymore but if your going to ask her mom and step dad first and then her dad.

Maybe you can check with her about whether it would be meaningful for you to talk to her dad. That is what my fiancé did since my parents are divorced and I’m glad because he wasn’t planning to ask my mom and she’s the one who raised me. She was very, very touched and I think it made him happy to know that she was so happy about him becoming her son-in-law.

Based on what you said, definitely talk to the mom and stepfather but probably also her father.

Just the fact that you are being so thoughtful about this is really sweet. Smile I hope you have a smooth and joyful proposal!
