"More assumptions.  Given the difference in nationalities between mother and father, and the woman's age, I see no reason to think it was a matter under his control."

"To me it is simple, ask her if it is important to her to have you ask. If so ask. Just remember you are asking for his blessing not his permission."

"I think it would be well to ask a sympathetic Muslim or ex-Muslim what's most reasonable.  I don't know their customs.  What's her religion?  And what does she think on this issue?"

Asking her Father

Dear reader,Main reason I read articles on The Art of Manliness is because I love traditions and love to receive some guidance. I've been dating a wonderful woman for the past year and at some point I'd like to marry her. She feels the same way which is terrific. That being said her father lives in Morocco and believes in the Quran, which is unfortunate since I'm agnostic and so is she. I'd like to ask him her hand in marriage because I believe it's the right thing to do, but I realize that I…See More

Sorry but does anyone know an equivalent webs tie to the art of manliness for women?

No... There used to be a community called the Art of Womanliness, but it never really took off... But no blogs like AoM... Why do you ask?

The art of doing and not thinking

Hi ThereSo first of all I want to explain - Obviously the title is a little incorrect when read literally.
