    Hmmm. Do or say? Be honest. Tell the truth. Your dad's just worried for you. I'm sure he'll come around to it if he sees it's what you really want. Good luck! Also, I think it's sweet that he wants your dad's blessing. Half the world doesn't do that nowadays.

    Your dad is probably considering things like your boyfriend's education, career, money, age, and Length of relationship. Your father was a young man who wanted to marry his sweetheart at one time and so he has learned what is needed to make a marriage work. By being double minded he is expressing obvious doubt as to your boyfriend's and your ability to make it.

    I suggest that you consider these things and decide to wait a bit if needed. After all, what's the hurry? Something as permanent as a marriage must be handled with extreme care. After all, it is not the ceremony and the party that will make it last; it is all the other stuff that I've already mentioned.

    Take your time and do it well. You will be glad that you did. Your parents are your allies, so consult them often.

    Wishing you the best,

    Mr. M on "need advice."

    I would say do not force your dad into anything. there may be a good reason why he has not given you 2 answer. Not everything is black and white. If anything it should be your boyfriend that should be concerned...and why do you know about him asking your dad? You should not have even known about it until a clear answer was given.

    Well back in the day that was appropriate and still is respectful. However I think the person that he really needs to ask is you!

    You shouldn't get in the middle of it. It is between your boyfriend and your father.
