Before you were engaged

Did your husband ask your father (or mother) permission (or their blessing) to marry you?

My daughter's boy friend asked my husband before he asked her.  I think that says a lot about a man, IMO.

I think it's very honorable that your dd's boyfriend asked for her hand in marriage. I hope that when my dd meets her future husband he will do the same :)

He didn't meet my dad til we were engaged and two months from our wedding date.

My hubby didn't really propose in the traditional sense.

Thank You!  I too thought it was very honorable.  As I said, I think it says a lot about a man.

Yes he is, and he takes VERY good care of my daughter.  He is closing on a house on Friday, and he's only 23.
