:-) No, not really.
We are both mature adults and we are able to understand what makes us happy.

I am only doing this to keep the customs alive and I am pretty sure it will be appreciated by her family.
I also know (correct me if I am wrong) from a Mexican friend of mine, that this is how it used to be some years ago. The groom had to ask the parent's permission in order to marry their daughter.

I am also planning to ask her to marry me before I do that.
( As a romantic gesture really. We have already decided to be together )
