Note: This is an article about lost gentleman traditions: honor, respect, courtesy, and manners. It s for men, by a man. Chivalry IS, in fact, dead when men no longer understand the meaning behind a chivalrous action. When actions no longer come from within, but are forced and expected, the inner gentleman dies and so does chivalry. As we discussed in the last, there is history behind gentleman etiquette.

Symbolically it might mean he’ll always be by her side, through thick and thin, and will protect her from anything. The modern gentleman helps her in and out of the car to stand in the way of creepy gawkers. Opening a door for her is not a sign she is weak, but a gesture of affection.

If you want to ask a woman to marry you, and get a yes, don t insult her by consulting her father first.
The two of you can always pretend that he s asking for permission after he s asked and been accepted. If a man wants to marry a woman he should know he’s marrying Into her family. As such, he should also know how her father feels about him long before he asks her to be his wife.

I’m pretty sure if the man and her father don’t like each other then the marriage is doomed to fail anyway.
Unless there are extenuating familial circumstances, any woman who would be insulted by a man asking her Father s blessing for asking for her hand in marriage is NOT a woman worth marrying! Only marital trouble will follow such a disrespectful attitude.
