So, I'm ready to ask my lady to marry me; however, there's an interesting situation involving her parents. They love me, that's not the issue. The problem is that they don't agree with the whole "gay thing". I know that if I were a guy asking their permission to marry their daughter wouldn't be a problem at all. Unfortunately, for the ease of my situation, I'm not a man.
Should I ask their permission at all?
Is there anything that might ease the mild tension of the situation?
