That tradition of asking a woman’s parents before you propose is a little out of date. But in Britney Spears’ case, it’s not just a tradition…it’s the law. Britney’s dad Jamie is still her conservator, so it’s his call.
A source says, “Britney can’t get married unless Jamie approves it, and Jamie is inclined not to, because it would only [create complicated] legal issues.”
It sounds like a crazy way to live, but Jamie has kept things from falling apart for more than 10 years now. And we all know that when things fall apart for Britney, they really fall apart.
