Do I ask her father’s blessing to marry her or just propose to her without asking?

I feel like her father might say no if I ask but I really don’t care. I am trying to be traditional so I think the right thing to do would be to ask for her old man’s approval.

I don’t want or need his permission. I will do what I want. I think it would be nice to have his blessing though. It would also make my grandmother very happy since she likes things to be traditional. For the record if he says no I will propose anyway and the proposal will be with her and I or my family and friends present with us because I mostly care at the end of the day what they think. Her old man is going to know I intend to propose if the majority of you think I should get his blessing otherwise I won’t tell him and just go ahead and propose.

    Why ask? Is she religious? Is her father in his 70’s? Fuck that. Only propose if you are sure she will say yes!

    Traditional is based on respect, if you don’t respect his response then you don’t respect him which means you are not traditional. So my question is why bother?

    Ask him. Even if he says no, at least you showed him the respect of asking and you can spend the rest of your life showing him how wrong he was about you…maybe even change his mind over time. Asking him also will mean something to your girlfriend if she respects him.

    You should ask. If he respects you already, it should be a no-brainer.
