A father is a daughter’s first love.
From time immemorial, girls have been known to be fond of their fathers, cultivating a closeness that surpasses -if I may say- any other relationship. Fathers have been and still are the male figures of which their daughters look up to and from a young age learn from on how to relate with other men. Only reason why they say a girl marries a man who is just like her father.
Sarah and her father have always been close and this was evident on the day of her wedding. Her father had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that he was giving away his daughter. “Today you are going to be someone’s wife but you will always be my little girl” this is what Sarah’s dad told her on her wedding day as they drove to the church in which the ceremony was to take place.
As they walked down the aisle she asked him how he was feeling, he said to her “If it was not for the fact that this wedding had to happen, I would not give you away,” an emotional utterance of a father -who in his mind was giving away his daughter in all completeness. “He is happy but he is not happy because he has to give me away,” Sarah remarks.
A good father is one who raises his daughter to be strong, independent and one who makes good choices all the while being an example of how a man should treat a woman based on how he relates with her mother. Fathers set the standards on how a man should treat their daughters.
Most dads are not concerned with the flowers, centre pieces, linens or décor, their only concern is that the man they are walking their daughter down the aisle to is a good man who will treat their little girl like the queen she was raised to be.
