She says she has found the man of her dreams, and is ready to take the plunge. But as a father, you are having second thoughts about the man she’s going to marry. Your future son-in-law could be arriving anytime to ask for your daughter’s hand in marriage, and you need to be sure before you give your blessing. How can you be sure? Well, asking some important questions can help you get a better idea about your future son-in-law.
A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.
From the time you laid eyes on her, you swore to protect her from all evil. She is your little princess, and you love her no matter what. You have been her constant companion, and the most important man in her life. However, a lot of time has passed since you rocked her cradle for the first time. She is all grown up, transformed into a beautiful young woman. She has done great for herself academically and professionally. During those years, she fell in and out of love, and you stood beside her like a rock, comforting her through the ups and downs she faced. Nevertheless, now you’ve heard that she is seeing someone for quite a while. She seems content, and never complains about him. You’ve never seen her this happy.
But the day that every father dreads does arrive. He has proposed to her, and she has accepted it. You are happy for your little princess, but you still question the motives of your would-be son-in-law. Sure, your daughter seems happy with him, but that isn’t enough for you. You need to have a man-to-man talk to get to know him better. And to know how serious he is about your daughter, you can ask the following questions.
