Comments on: Daddies, Don’t Let Your Daughters Grow Up to Get Married http://likethedew.com/2013/03/13/daddies-dont-let-your-daughters-grow-up-to-get-married/ A journal of progressive Southern culture and politics Thu, 08 Feb 2018 19:46:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 By: From the other side http://likethedew.com/2013/03/13/daddies-dont-let-your-daughters-grow-up-to-get-married/#comment-30885 Tue, 19 Mar 2013 13:29:00 +0000 http://likethedew.com/?p=49940#comment-30885 This is the sort of article to which I reply, “Someone finally had the nerve to say it!” Thank you from all of us Dads who have shelled out many, many thousands because we didn’t have the kahoonas to say, “Hey darlin, please, let’s be reasonable!” Hopefully some young Dads will read this and do what not many of our age group had the heart or nerve to pull off: stop spoiling them rotten beginning at day one.

You are a funny guy. Nevertheless, I have two words for you: 1. Congratulations 2. Elopement.

Great piece. Will

Stop whining.:) This only happens once (hopefully) and these are the best days of your life. They will also be the best days of her life and will be the memories that sustain her when you are gone. Rarely in life are things “50/50”. The greater the investment, the greater the reward…..

I really AM looking forward to my little girl’s wedding. It’s even money as to who will be crying more; me or her. The tone of the piece came off as unintentionally bitter; I’m not (OK, maybe a little).

Nothing. I’ve done it twice and I am awestruck thinking about it.
