belongs_to required parent

belongs_to required parent: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features
belongs_to required parent: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

belongs_to requires a parent record by default in Ruby on Rails 5. When turned on, belongs_to associations automatically get validates_presence_of :parent added to them. This was possible in the past using the :required option, but now it is the default and it is necessary to use the :optional option to opt-out. This change will affect any code that saves a child record before saving the associated parent record.
