Uncover the concerns

I asked Dr. Louis what are some common reasons parents say no to the request and she said, “It might be financial issues. That is sometimes a reason,” says Dr. Louis. “Concerns of ‘This person isn’t stable. This person can’t provide in a certain way,’ or ‘They’re not yet that established to transition into marriage.’” If the parents are already so traditional that they’d expect a man to ask their permission to marry their daughter, they may also carry these traditional ideas about who the provider should be in a marriage.
