Asking for forgiveness is always better than asking for permission when dealing with issues marital in nature.
Marriage is like raising a baby bird, then letting it fly away. If it comes back, all is well. If it does not, go find you another that smells nicer, isn't so fat, and doesn't snore as much.
Also, to maintain a sound marriage, it is crucial for the man to screw up pretty good about every two months. For the 60 days following that episode, the wife will be focused on your most recent big "misunderstanding", and stop nitpicking you about every little inconsequential issue.
You are welcome.
