by alli4985 » Nov 13, 2007 I have a problem here. I have been with my g/f for over a year now and we''ve been living together for 5 months. We are both 25 years old. I plan to propose soon but not sure how. Her parents are a very conservative, traditionalist family (not very happy that we live together w/o being married). I need some advice about asking them for permission to marry their daughter. Do I ask them both, if so at the same time? Also...Can I pick out a ring now, propose with it, then if it''s the wrong size we can get the right size. She doesn''t have any rings laying around, and there aren''t any friends of her''s that I could ask. So...I''m open to suggestions!
