I second all of those. Just do it. I hate to have to "ask" for permission like I'm a little kid. If I want to do something and I'm going to pay for it & otherwise be the responsible party, and its not going to negatively impact another person in my family, then I don't ask. I just do it. My family members can choose whether they want to be involved, or take an interest, or not.
