I live in US and have known my Filipino girlfriend for a long time but her parents don’t know me Is it tradition for a man to ask a Filipino’s parents’ permission first before proposing to her

Filipino families are often very close as families and although not totally necessary it would be very respectful of you to either go visit her parents so they can get to know you and accept you into their family; letting them know their daughter is marrying a good man or, you could invite her parents to come visit paying the full cost. Although your girlfriend is more Westernized it is most respectful for you to be accepted by her family and because you asked the question in the first place I am sure they will accept you into their family with open arms.
