i had this discussion with my daughter and i expect her future husband to ask me. This is a sign of respect and if he has the courage to ask me then i figured he is mature enough to be responsible to take care of the most precious gift that he will be responsible for my daughter. This will also give me the opportunity to share with him Gods expectations for marriage and what his role as husband should be.

something I had thought was standard practice, previously, but now I know it's possible to see if it were ever an option. I've not married, so, perhaps it's a good idea!

It is so appropriate. If someone asked my parents permission, they wouldn't tell me. My little brother asked his fiance's parents and then set up a romantic date on Christmas Eve. People may think it is old fashioned but I think it shows character and respect for not only your future spouse but for her parents!
