I'm not sure where to write this, but this board seemed like a good place.
I'm very close to my family and truly am my father's princess. Growing up I always wanted to be just like him. Bf and I have been talking about getting married for about two years now. Not intensive or detailed but very wistfully. He's asked my father for his blessing twice and my dad has said no both times. The first time I understand because we were only dating for a year but this time he didn't want bf interfering with my budding career, as he put it. My dad and my bf get along great and I think this is the first thing they've disagreed on.
I'm just not sure what to do about this. I know this is 2012 but my father means the world to me. I'm not sure if it would insult my dad if bf proposed without his permision after he's asked him twice. Thoughts or advice?
