It looks like this thread is related, but does not answer the question: https://nation.marketo.com/message/194671-re-form-validation-behavior#194671
Right now on the mkto form I am using, the error message appears not upon form submit, but rather after clicking on an empty field for the second time. Is there any way to adjust this validation to occur upon form submit or to change the validation to trigger after the third or fourth time an empty field is clicked upon?

Hmm, something's wrong with your form if so. Native validation runs on submit, always, in addition to the sometimes unwanted validation on focus.
It is running on submit; the thing I'd love to adjust is the on-focus behavior. It is actually a small thing, but the biggest reason is that one the validation error is triggered, it appears on every require field on focus. That is the part I find clunky.
OK, ya did say "appears not upon form submit."
There is a way to turn this off, but I can't get to it immediately.
I was typing too fast... sorry about that! And yeah it is a pretty low priority; I am realizing most folks will not be affected by that validation behavior.
