Hey everyone! Where you come from, is it a custom for a man to ask permission from a family member of his girlfriend to marry her?

Hi David,

Thank you for posting.

I think that it's still common that the boyfriend requests the family permission to marry her here, but there are also occasions in which the couple travels to a special place/country and the boyfriend proposes to his girl only. Modern times! :)

Just a note regarding an expression you used on your text: we use "รฉ praxe" to mean "it is the rule"

Should you have any questions, please let us know.

E uma praxa para perguntar a noiva se ela quer vai se-casar enfrente da familia dela, ne? Eu fiz isto na confeteira Colombo, no Rio. Minha esposa me contou que isto e uma tradicao.

Oi Jonathan,

I believe many families in Brazil are also like that nowadays, but it's always a good impression to ask the father permission to marry :sunglasses:

As for the vocabulary, both "expressar" and "exprimir" mean "to express".

We have deleted the wrong audio.

Let us know if you have any question!

Question: the vocabulary section has "expressar" for express but the review section says "exprimir." Which one is correct, or are they both correct?

It still is custom where I'm from to ask the girl's father permission to marry. Before my brother just asked his girlfriend to marry him, her dad said not to worry about asking him for permission. But my brother did it anyways to be respectful to the family. :thumbsup:
