Should I ask her father's permission?

asking fathers permissionAsking a father for permission to marry his daughter is a traditional sort of thing. It is important for some women that you make use of this traditional gesture. It may also help enhance your relationship with your future in-laws. If you are not sure what to do then I would go with the traditional approach. However, there are some women that may have a problem with you asking permission to marry them. Some good reasons to consider not asking for her father's permission might be if your girlfriend has a bad or nonexistent relationship with her father or if you have heard your girlfriend complain about anything using the word "patriarchal".
