    To me you need to set it up with him... I did the: "can we do lunch one day next week? and can you keep it between us?" Than he knows what's coming... Mine went over very well and we have been married for 8 years now

    Been married for 42 years and its the most amazing ride yoiu will ever take. Some times awesome sometimes not so awesome worth everything you can put into it. That is assuming you have the right girl.
    When you get to the parents house come up with some excuse to get the dad to go to the store or somewhere with you that the girlfriend wont want to go with you. heck pretend you have a light out on the car and want the dad to go to the auto parts store with you.

    Best to you

    Question for all the guys who are married!

    I'm in the same situation... 5 years with my girl and getting ready to "pop"...

    Always wondered what if they say no? Lol it's not like your going to change your mind, lol

    I was always told to ask for their blessing and not their permission..

    Good luck man I hope it works for you!

    Just what 04gtxsc, and mattydips said. Come up with any excuse to talk to him. If nothing else just be blunt and say "hey, you mind if we talk for a minute?" I second the ask for a blessing, not permission. Make sure you are ready to do it though, cause he will be expecting to see a ring on her finger shortly after. Just tell him how you feel and that your going to ask for her hand, and you would like his blessing. If he says no, would that change your mind? If it does rethink your position. Good luck. I think now a days its not too common for guys to ask for a blessing, her father will respect you for the courtesy.

    I said something like "so, are you ok with this?" His answer of "yeah but you know she has a temper" has haunted me several times in 13 years. So my advice is listen to his advice.

    So,IF her dad says no,are you not gonna ask her to marry you????You can do the traditional thing and ask,BUT its about you and her..IF you two truely love each other and want to be with each other it shouldnt matter what her Dad or anybody else says or thinks..its about you two and your future..And if you want to marry her,and she wants to be your wife,then marry the girl and enjoy your time together....
