In talking with her parents that day, I found out that her Dad had not asked, which I found humorous.
No one actually asks for permission, and anyone who says they have, is wrong whether they realize it or not. What they are actually doing is asking for the father's blessing.

If he says no, they would not have shrugged their shoulders, said "well shoot, so much for that", and broken up with the girl.
