If you don't mind me asking, why do you need your father's permission to get married? Is there anyway you can get married anyway?
Supprisingly it isn't your fathers decision who you marry. If you love him, marry him.
Marrying someone for love is a bad reason. Marry someone because you want to live with him/her for the rest of your life, building your life together and making him/her your number one priority. And everyday you'll love him/her a little bit more than the day before, and it's only at the end that you'll be able to say "yes I loves him/her". Oh and by the way (s)he has to think/do the same.
Marry. Him. The FML community gives you permission. Not that you need anyone's permission. He has financial sensibility, and the backbone not to get pushed around or taken advantage of. Your dad, on the other hand, needs to seek help for his gambling addiction. I hope to see a follow-up from you some day saying you've married him, and your dad's gone through a gambling addiction program.
