1. The father giving away the bride like property. Haven’t we gotten past that yet? (For the record, both of my parents walked the aisle with me). And a wedding-related tradition – the asking the father for permission. What’s THAT all about?


  2. I didn’t think there were any hard and fast rules about weddings any more. I guess we could definitely do without the father giving the bride away.


  3. I pretty much have no problem with the religious side of a Jewish ceremony, in which both parents escort both bride and groom. That’s support, not property. (A woman who has been independent and is older than twenty-one belongs to herself, whatever the custom.)

    Personally, my own wedding was pretty traditional, but I absolutely refused to do anything that bared my garter!
