Cupid’s Advice: 

Are you trying to cross your t’s and dot your i’s before you get down on one knee? Cupid has some advice on how to handle the family:

1. Be considerate: Make sure that you don’t take up to much of their time or inconvenience their schedule. Be polite and gracious. Keep things direct, but make it very obvious that you care about their daughter or son.

2. Include them: Give the parents the opportunity to be involved in the proposal, whether that means actually having them present when you pop the question or throwing a small get together afterward to celebrate.

3. Be creative: Feel free to have a little fun with asking for permission, as long as it feels comfortable. You could sing a song you wrote, sharing how much you love their daughter/son. Or, you could include other family members for a little help!
