Kinda continuing from the thread here, http://www.avforums.com/forums/general-chat/1271287-how-greet-my-daughters-boyfriend-4.html A question for all the Dads. Would you expect to be asked for your daughter's hand in marriage, or permission for him to pop the question. Is that old fashioned now? Especially since the chances are your daughter will have long since moved out of the house and in some cases be living with the guy who's popping the question! Is it disrespectful if he just proposes and tells you afterwards, or are we living in a modern world, you don't own your daughter so why would 1 grown man have to ask another grown man's permission to marry her?
