Knocking a woman out and keeping her locked in the basement counts as a marriage.

I never asked my now father in law. A few weeks after I proposed he cornered me at a family event and said "you should have asked for my blessing first!" He shook my hand and gave a retrospective permission :lol: it was quite absurd but he is very old fashioned conservative baby boomer type.

It also bags you major brownie points with relatives.

The wife was brought up by her mum and she said I should ask her mum is I could marry her rather than her dad as she was very traditional.

I pointed out that if that is the case her mum will also be fine with paying for it all, at which point I no longer needed to ask and it turned out she wasn't "that" traditional.

To the surprise of absolute nobody that's familiar with what I've said about my in-laws on here in the past, I didn't bother.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Because they disapprove of you?

Now why do you have to go and assume that?

Because I am your father in law and I know what a scumbag you are.

I went with the "Just so you know, I'm planning on asking her to marry me and I hope you're happy about that" approach.

I feel it would be slightly insulting to actually ask permission.

So turns out the reason that girl I'm dating is so shy/awkward is because she has agoraphobia and at one point didn't leave her house for over year.

I wish she'd told me sooner. In retrospect it makes sense why she looked so uncomfortable when I took her for icecream and the place was packed, I thought she just didn't like her icecream :slol:

Has anyone here had any experience with agoraphobia?

Had to Google it to find out what it was. Sounds heavy.

Yeah, I'm glad I didn't take some of the advice on here.

Not that people weren't trying to be helpful, but when someone has gone through something like that you can't really treat them like you would everyone else.

I knew something was up, but she wouldn't ever tell me, guess she was afraid of scaring me off or something.

At least it shows she trusts you since she's talked about it, yeah?
