All right -- am I wrong, or is something off here?
This man has a "ceremony" with his 12 year old daughter in which he makes her promise to remain a virgin until she marries, saying he's going to be the special man in her life until she finds a a man to replace him --
All right, okay, the ideas behind all this might be okay. Maybe. A father should support his daughter. He ought to tell his daughter she's beautiful and special.
But a father having a "virginity ceremony" with his 12 year old daughter strikes me as slight creeped out.
I might add, obsessively patriarchial and a bit of a control-freak -- but I won't.
And notice the end of the story -- this guy sees his daughter as a "gift" for another man. She's nothing but property to him.
