An Eastwood daughter wedding is topping celebrity news searches this Monday morning, as the CS Monitor reported this March 18 that Clint Eastwood was able to celebrate his daughter, Alison Eastwood, getting married this weekend — after being asked permission by the husband-to-be, Stacy Poitras.
With the headline, “Eastwood daughter wedding OKed by dad”, sources report that Stacy Poitras wanted to ask well-known father Clintwood for his daughter’s hand in marriage the “old-fashioned” way, throwing into question whether asking a parent’s permission before a wedding is still traditional or not.
An Eastwood daughter wedding for Alison Eastwood to fiancé Stacy Poitras brought together the movie star’s child with a classic outdoorsman type (Poitras makes sculptures with chainsaws as a pastime). Poitras decided to ask the country-western actor the proper way to marry his daughter, and it certainly worked after the family enjoyed a “beautiful” ceremony this weekend, said the report. As for how Poitras asked Clint:
"He looked at me for four or five seconds, which felt like 15 minutes, and then he said, ‘You’re going to have to take that up with her,’” Poitras revealed last year about asking the famous dad’s permission to Westlife. “I said, ‘Is that a yes or a no?’ And he said, ‘That’s a yes,’ and he shook my hand.”
Although marriage customs in a modern world continually change, this longtime tradition of asking a father to marry his daughter seems to have worked well toward a great beginning for the happy couple.
