My Girlfriend's Father--What a Man...

Posted by Fatherhood Admin

I found the below passage in a book that I was reading recently:

I'll never forget the night during my sophomore year, when my college girlfriend closed her eyes, wiggled out of her panties, and prepared to abandon her virginity. I was 20 at the time: she was barely 18. Her father had just dropped us off at the hotel, knowing full well what was about to transpire...The night before the big event he sat me down in their den. I prepared myself for an angry tirade. Instead, he spoke with the voice of a pensive diplomat. 'I'm glad she chose you,' he said...Although Karen's mother and father blessed our union, Mother Nature didn't. The next day, the Midwest was hit with an unusually ferocious snowstorm... [But] later that afternoon, her father came downstairs, holding his blue wool cap in one hand and a set of expensive gleaming car keys in the other. Prepared to trust me with his only daughter, but not with his brand-new Volvo, he shook the very foundation of parental propriety by offering to drive us to the hotel.
