    Default Asking for Her Hand in Marriage


    let's talk about it. How was the feeling? How did it end up to?

    Some Do' and Don'ts in Asking Her Hand from the parents:
    (Asking for Her Hand in Marriage - The Do's and Don'ts of Asking Parents for Their Blessing on Your Engagement)

    Should you ask your girlfriend's parents for her hand in marriage?
    Generally it is a nice gesture, assuming your sweetheart is close with her parents and that they are relatively traditional. If they are non-traditional, or you are worried they (or she) might see it as a sexist gesture, simply be careful about the way you phrase it. Rather than asking for their permission, ask for their blessing. Situations where you shouldn't ask include if she is estranged from her parents, if she is an older bride, or if you think her parents will spoil the surprise of your proposal.

    How to ask for her hand in marriage
    If you live close-by, the easiest thing to do is to call and ask if you can stop by for a moment as you have something to ask them. They'll probably suspect, but that's okay as it will give them time to be prepared and know what to say. If you are friends with them, you might see if they want to go out to dinner, but since this will be rather nervous-making, it might be better to keep it short and sweet.

    Should they live far away, try to call at a time when you think they'll be home. If her parents are still married, and you happen to call at a time when only one is available, simply say that you have something you want to ask them, but would like to wait until you can ask them both together, and when would be a good time to do so.

    What to say
    Start out by saying a sentence or two about your love for their daughter. Then say something about why you feel now is the time to move the relationship to the next level, and follow it by asking for their blessing. For example, you might say, "As you know, I love your daughter very much. She is the most beautiful, intelligent and loving woman a man could ever ask for. We've been together for almost three years now, and I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else but her. I would like to ask her to marry me and I'm here today to ask you for your blessing." Simple, but sweet.
    If her parents are divorced, which parent should you approach first?
    There isn't an easy answer to this question, but I suggest that you start with the parent that she has lived with most. You could also start with the parent you think is the most approachable, especially if you are nervous. Be sure to ask both parents, unless of course she is estranged from one.


    What if they say no?
    This is always a possibility, but fortunately it is not a very frequent one. If her parents do not want to give you their blessing, try to stay calm. Find out what their reasoning is, if you can. You'll probably want to tell your girlfriend what happened, but try to avoid seeming like you are asking her to take sides. Decide together whether it is better to wait until you can earn their blessing (perhaps they just want you to finish school or have a steady job before you can get married) or to go against their wishes. Try your best to understand where they are coming from, and to appreciate that it is almost certainly a position of love for their daughter.

    My parents are very traditional. They don't know that I'm dating because they don't want me to date anyone except for my future husband. I can't even imagine my bf coming over to my house to ask for my hand in marriage. Traditional parents are the scariest.

    I can freely say that it is better to find a really good person but it might be really hard. I am currently using https://www.seekmeetdate.com which is helping me to find really interesting people to chat and to get new emotions from talking. I want to say that it brings me a lot of energy and I can freely get to know a lot of interesting information.
