This all depends on the expectation that the famiy has when giving away their daughter for marriage. It is up to you to determine how traditional they are when it comes to marriage proposals and what they expect to have happen when it does.
You should try to seek out your partner’s parents and discuss your plans for a marriage proposal. One of two things will happen. They will either support you or they will be against your marriage intentions.
Parents want to have the confidence that their daughter will enjoy a happy life with her future partner. This means they will build a family in a happy home for the rest of their lives.
Additionally, parents want to know that they will be able to have a positive relationship with the person that they are bringing into the family. By approaching them and asking for their approval, it shows your intent to include them in important affairs and decisions that will affect both their lives and the life of their daughter.
How can you deal with disapproving parents?
It’s a very tricky situation because even though you are in love, the parents undermine the true feelings that you both have for one another. They want you to abide by their decisions for the life of your partner and not what both you and your partner desire.
- Try to talk with them and understand their position.
- Then discuss options on how things could potentially work.
Should you still pursue marriage without their approval?
This is a decision that you’ll have to make. When it comes to love, you should follow everything in your heart. There’s a chance that if you decide not to pursue it, you won’t ever find true happiness like you had before,
What if your parents disapprove of your fiance?
It does happen, but at the end of the day, you need to make the decision that you believe is best for you. You can try to talk to them to see what their concerns are, and then try to reassure them that you are making the best decision for your future.
If you talk to your parents and they still disapprove, think carefully about any feedback that they may have given you and then make a decision on what you would like to do. Should you choose to go ahead with the proposal, think about how it might impact the long-term relationship between you and your parents. Is it a decision that you will be able to live with?
Love conquers all, but it does have its challenges. Should this be a situation that you are faced with, don’t fear. Your partner’s love for you should be enough to help her parents have the confidence in you and get them on board with your marriage endeavours.
