'Marrying Millions': Dani not allowed to sleep with Donovan before wedding, can he convince her conservative dad?
Donovan has been nervous because he's sure that his and Dani's parents won't understand each other well because of communication hurdles
Dani and Donovan never had much issues of their own, and they were able to resolve the minor conflicts peacefully with a massive engagement ring. The couple was happy until Donovan learned that he would have to ask for Dani's hand from her father for marriage. Ideally, this shouldn't put someone on the edge but Donovan has been nervous because he's sure that his and Dani's parents won't understand each other well because of communication hurdles.
In this week's episode of 'Marrying Millions' Season 2, we are told Dani's father speaks only Spanish and doesn't understand English. Since Donovan doesn't know much of Spanish and can only converse in English, there was bound to be an issue and it all started with when Dani's mother introduced the couple to the room they would be staying the night in. She said that there was a larger room but Dani's father would like them to sleep in bunker beds because that way they won't be in the same bed before marriage. She said he was conservative that way. Donovan said that he has not slept in such beds since he was seven-years-old but it seemed he was ready to make an exception.
Dani was quick to change the subject. She helped Donovan rehearse the scene where she played her father's role while he sought permission for marriage. It was all beginning to get too much for Donovan and it was evident from the way he was letting out huge sighs. As the family sat down for dinner, Donovan finished his plate of dinner even before anyone else could get started. Dani thought it was rude to do so but realized that it could happen with the nervousness kicking in. A few minutes into the meal, Dani brought up the topic of the ring, slyly helping Donovan start the conversation regarding their marriage. He was finally able to ask for permission, albeit in English and it seemed Dani's father was happy to allow him to marry his daughter.
