QUESTION: I am going to ask my girlfriend to marry me soon. Am I supposed to ask her dad for her hand in marriage? Or is that an out-of-date custom?
CALLIE’S ANSWER: Absolutely you need to ask her dad first. It is a wonderful tradition and a huge sign of respect. Best wishes!!
LILLIE-BETH’S ANSWER: I like this tradition, even if it seems like it’s not necessary.
