    Only one more thing.. you say you are generally more direct here in Europe - but will it still sound polite if one removes the part "Podría tener su autorización.."?
    It seemed to me like a nicer way to ask ...but then again, I don't speak Spanish!
    Maybe I could add por favor in the beginning?

    Yes, just add por favor at the beginning or the end. We would not say the authorization part unless it is for an official issue.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)
