Just curious as to whether or not you, or your partner asked your partner’s parents / father for your partners hand in marriage. (this poll is supposed to be for anyone who has been in this situation, but the title looked fairly crappy as “married, engaged, divorced, widowed, left at the altar,… dopers poll”) No offence meant to those who aren’t currently married, but wish to respond.
My partner didn’t because we were getting married regardless of our parents wishes on the matter, so we felt it kinda rude to ask permission for something we intended on doing no matter what they said. My father had a different opinion, but got over it (just in time to be told that NOBODY was ‘giving’ me away :p)
So, did you ask, or your partner ask ?
Anybody get a “no” but go ahead anyway ?
Any interesting anecdotes ?
