My Daughter

Recommended Posts

I have three single daughters over the age of 23. My middle daughter just called and told me she was engaged. Her boyfriend called me last week to ask permission for her hand in marriage.

I have now cried twice in the last week. . .

And lived in a brand new way. Congratulations on raising a young lady who attracts the serious and lasting attention of well-mannered men. Can't do that with a tramp stamp.

My faith is momentarily restored in humanity.

I hope the fiance is worthy of your daughter. Did you cry because they want you to pay for the wedding?

My son is adamantly opposed to ever getting married. My daughter has selected her mate and is awaiting the appropriate amount of time to be wed. He's 10 and she's 6.

As a man who got married just under a year ago, and seeing what things cost, you'll likely be crying a whole new set of tears. The empty bank account kind.[;)] Congrats brother Jerry.

Congrats!! Nice to hear some good news for a change. Before you know it you will be a grandpa!!

My father-in-law gave us the choice of a big wedding or a simple wedding accompanied by a big check. We had the big wedding. 21 years later as my older son ships off to his first year of college in Boston we wonder if the cash would have been a better decision!

My daughters are hopefully a few years away from this.

Anyway, they can't get married unless they agree to take care of my wife and I when we get old. Change our diapers and stuff. It's only fair.

And their husbands can't call me dad.

The part that hurts the most is the fact that Dads premiere spot on the totem pole has just been bumped.

Congrats. He must be above board if he called to ask permission.
