about myself, my plans and my intentions with the man’s daughter.
It’d be an opportunity to make a verbal contract of sorts between the father and myself. Traditionally, this kind of over a bride-to-be is done with both peoples’ parents there and I suspect in a lot of areas (especially rural places) it’s almost like a business transaction.
When you meet her father to request permission to see her right at the start, he’ll want to be confident that you can provide all this from the get-go.
This is not only for I didn’t have an apartment or a stable job at the time but this was only after I explained my short to mid-term plans in extreme detail.
I was fortunate that I had these people to back me up.
