Yea you read it right I'm thinking of asking my girlfriend of marrying me. A little background we started dating about a year and half ago and needless to say things have progressed very quickly. I am madly in love with this girl and know that I want to spend the rest of my life with her. We are both 23yrs old and are graduating college in the spring.
I know for a fact that she will say yes but we are both very nervous to tell our parents about it because we are considered young to get engaged and she is more nervous because her father is very very strict/old fashioned and basically she is afraid to tell him (her sister moved in with her BF (they are 27) and he nearly disowned her. I am a lot less nervous of my parents but a very nervous to ask her father permission or for his blessing etc.
Basically I just want peoples opinions or if anyone's been in a similar situation and what they did. its not going to sway my decision either way I'm just curious. Thanks everyone I hope this sparks a nice discussion.
