It has been one week since I proposed to my girlfriend, The Penpal. The proposal was sudden, so we hadn’t consulted with her parents first. She asked for some time to sell them on the idea, and suggested talking to them by herself would be easier.
It turns out that her parents were more than a little surprised by the idea. Her mom is doing okay with it, but her dad is providing some resistance. The idea of an international marriage is not always appealing to parents.
The Penpal asked me to give it some more time. I really hope they come around!
