Boy getting married without the permission of his father

Q: I met a boy and we have been chatting for around 8 months now. He wants me to marry him. He spoke to my parents without consulting his own as we are young and still schooling. We want to do it the correct way and make things halaal. Are we still allowed to get maaried without the permission of his father and if not, how should we go about speaking to his father as he is really scared to?

A: Marriage is a responsibility. Is he able to assume the full responsibility of marriage himself?

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
