DEAR DEIDRE: MY daughter doesn’t want me to walk her down the aisle and “give her away”.

She says she is meeting her future husband at the church door and they’re walking down the aisle together. I am heartbroken.

I’m 55. My daughter is 26. My disappointment is hard to explain. I feel so low right now. I have even been thinking of not going to the wedding but I know how much this would hurt my daughter. If this is the modern way, it sucks.

I want to say to all future brides: Please, if you love your dad, let him walk you down the aisle.  I feel as though my heart has been pulled out.


DEIDRE SAYS: Your relationship with your daughter shouldn’t hang on the few seconds it takes to walk her down the aisle.

Is it worth making this an issue when you’ve had a good relationship with her until now?

Say you love her and are disappointed but then leave it at that.
