Summary of question
Does a virgin girl need to get her father’s permission for marriage?
Please inform us what your viewpoint on the permission of the father for the marriage of his virgin daughter is?
Concise answer

The maraje’ consider the permission of the father or paternal grandfather [in the case of her not having a father] of a virgin girl necessary for her marriage [1] . [2] The baligh virgin girl who can distinguish between what is to her benefit and what isn't, must get her father’s or paternal grandfather’s (in the case of not having a father) permission if she wants to get married. In the case of her father or paternal grandfather not being present in a way that she can't get their permission, and her having the need of getting married, their permission will no longer be a condition. The same goes for the woman who isn't a virgin; she doesn’t need to get permission either, if her virginity was lost to a previous husband. In the case of her virginity being lost by a mistaken intercourse, or even adultery, it is a mustahabb precaution to get permission if possible (which means it is better, although it still isn't a condition and isn't wajib) [3] . [4]

Ayatullah Mahdi Hadavi Tehrani’s Response (may Allah prolong his life) to this inquiry:

In marriage (both temporary and permanent) with a discerning virgin girl, the father’s consent isn't a condition, although it is in accordance with precaution.
