My dad is very old fashioned and know he would appreciate it, but I don't know if the situtation would actually work out... FH is deployed right now and we will be getting engaged in December when he is home for his 2 week R&R. He has met my folks once (last year). My folks live out of state. Is it appropriate for him to just call? We will be visiting his mother (also out of state) while he is home during that time. It just seems kind of random for him to just call up my dad and ask... I doubt he has even thought about that part, especially since we have already made the decision and such. I know my folks arent expecting it either, so I don't know what the reaction would be...
Why are you waiting to get engaged if you already know when it is going to happen? I would say "honey, we're engaged & give me the ring in December when you get here". LOL!
My husband asked my dad, but it is not necessary & I don't think he was expecting it. I think he maily asked because he wanted to know where we should go to pick out a ring! LOL! Anyways, if he does not really know them it might make it that more strange & awkward!
Congrats on the future engagement & let us know how it all turns out!
Me and my fiance have been engaged almost a year now(i think, im horrible with time) and i just met his parents a month ago, and we had never even spoken to each other(meaning the FIL). So him just meeting them once isnt that bad considering you dont live near your family. now if you live down the block yeah that be a different situation. The asking for your hand in marriage subject, do you think your parents would be offended if he didnt ask? yeah i know the whole asking the father is traditional but now its almost as the engagement is always premeditated and agreed upon by the bride and groom..
