I can tell your stressed, not a single period in the whole paragraph!!
If you love this girl like you say you do just go talk to her father and be honest and tell him how you feel about his daughter. Hopefully he will understand.

IMO your too young to be getting so serious anyway. Have you really lived your life yet?? Are you ready to settle down with 1 woman??

Not trying to be a downer but i've been there twice and you really need to be ready for this kind of commitment. GOOD LUCK!

Well I think that you should go ask her dad, it is the honarable thing to do. Have you gus spent much time together in the since that you are say living together or something. I dont belive that a marriage can work unless you have lived together for a while. You will learn so much about the person you never knew!

Don't do it I repeat Don't do it.

She is only 18 and still green. The possibility of the marriage lasting is slim. Give her a chance to experince life a bit. Plus this will allow you to have an official relationship with her for a while.

If you ask her dad for her hand in marriage this soon. It is gonna open up a can of worms you do not want open.

He thinks the two of you have only been dating for a couple months. By asking for her hand in marriage could destroy not only your relationship with her father. But also the relationship you have with her.

I say wait at least another 1-2 years before you ask for her hand in marriage.

Way to young brother. She WILL change and so will you. You don't have to be married in order to tell her or show her you love her. I already know how her dad will react if she couldn't date until she was 18 and it's not going to be fun for you!

Just take it slow and if things work out after a year or so then ask her. Her dad will also have time to get to know you and not think your a lunatic.

If that was my daughter I would tell you to hit the road...just my .02
