Just out of curiosity?

Recommended Posts

My DH asked my mom (since my dad has passed) and showed her the ring he actually did it the night before my mom and I were going on a vacation for a week, wow can she keep a secret!

As soon as my dh picked up the ring at the jeweler he ran over to my parents house to ask my dad permission, my mom was still at work he waited for her to come home to show her the ring. My dad was so happy that dh asked him.

 

Im sure your fi will ask maybe he feels funny, its not like its something he does everyday so i'm sure he needs to work up some courage even if he knows your dad will say yes.

My husband talked to my dad about it, but didn't necessarily *ask permission*. We were ring shopping for MONTHS, so everyone knew it was coming. But I think it's also a preferential thing. My sister refused to have her husband ask my Dad b/c she felt that it was degrading to women since the reason this was done in the past is b/c we were considere property. I am not saying that isn't how it was, but I wasn't offended by the gesture and knew that my Dad would appreciate it, so I told Matt that he should have a talk with him.

 

It was actually a great experience for the both of them. My Dad was able to tell Matt how much better my life seems with him in it and how happy he has made me. I told Matt that stuff too, but it's different coming from someone else. I think they had a nice little chat about it and I am glad they did.

My DH took my dad out for a burger and a beer and "asked" for my hand. I thought it was very sweet. They already know each other and get along well, so it wasn't much of a stretch for him to do it.

Finally he went and talked to my father yesterday. FI said my father said yes before he even opened his mouth and that my father was very open with him. FI is a procrastinator and sometimes I feel like I have to put fire under his a$$ but to me that takes the genuineness out of things. My father was aware of us wanting to get married and I didn't want FI to ask for permission per say but to just have a conversation with him about it because of the relationship I have with him and I agree it's the respectful thing to do. So one more thing off the list with a million more to go, LOL!

 

Thank you all for the advice and input, happy planning/living to you all!

my dad's not in my life.. and Fi is pretty adamant that it should only be our decision, so he didn't ask my mom.. I don't mind either way.. although, i do think it's really nice.. and kind of makes me sad that i don't have a dad for him to ask!

My FI asked my dad if he could marry me before he asked me...I'm really glad he did, my dad definitely expected it.

It's funny that you mention this because my FI acutally asked my dad long before he actually asked me to marry him. We had dated for almost 5 years before he popped the question and we went through a mini break up along the way. Anyway, I was so devistated about this break up my dad ended up telling me that my now FI asked him if he could marry me so he could calm me down. I love my dad! He knew it was the only thing that knock me back into reality.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
