High Noon: Traditional Proposals

As I mentioned in the Wild Card, my son-in-law-to-be Okie Doke asked Saturday morning, July 9, for permission to marry my daughter, Amy Dearest. I, of course, said yes. I've liked the young fella from the first time I met him in Portland. In response, JeanieS commented that she appreciated the old-fashioned approach to the wedding proposal (read: asking parents for permission). I asked my wife's parents for permission to marry her. My son asked his future parents-in-law for permission to marry Sweet Stephanie. How about you?

Question: Did you or your spouse seek parental permission to marry?
