    Nothing like a good old fashion "asking the parents permission to marry their daughter." I think we need a lot more of that.

    Good luck and congrats.

    After 14 years of marriage, the wife and I still fall asleep every night holding hands.
    I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.

    I just said, "Sir I want to marry your Daughter if she'll have me and I'd like your blessing."

    Direct and to the point usually gets it done.
