Love this, from author W. Bruce Cameron’s new book “8 Simple Rules for Marrying My Daughter” offers humorous advice from dads to the new men in their daughters’ lives.
Here are his first three rules:
1. If you neglected to ask my permission before you proposed to my daughter, don’t worry about it. You can make it up to me by making sure your wedding is both beautiful and to a different woman.
2. There are many, many men your age in this world, but there is only one woman who is my daughter. She is unique. You, on the other hand, can be replaced at any time.
3. My whole life, it has been my job to make my daughter happy. Now it will be your job. My job will be to make sure you do your job. And don’t think that just because my daughter picked you, it means you meet my personal standards for what is good for her. I haven’t made up my mind yet, and will be evaluating you over a period known as forever.
This could be a great Xmas gift for Dad, or maybe a great gift from Dad to your fiance! Here's a description from its site:
"Following the stunning success of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter -- which was adapted into a TV show for ABC -- W. Bruce Cameron returns with an even more hilarious look at fatherhood, capturing the predicament of the forgotten man in the tux at his little girl's wedding. "
