My parents separated very early and he moved to live in the states, I stayed behind with my mom until he brought me here at age 16, I didn't live with him though, me and my sister moved out since we hated living with him and his wife, shortly after I went back to live with my mom in the DR again. The person that raised me, spend Christmas, my fist tooth, my first everything was my mom, she deserves the first dance more than anything in the world, she also deserves to walk me down the aisle.
My sister insisted that I have to let grudge go and make my father walk me down the aisle and have my first dance, I said absolutely NO! He does not deserve to give me away. After careful consideration, I know my mother doesn't dance, she would do it for me but she would be embarrassed to dead to stand there with all eyes on her, so a fair decision was to have my mom walk me down the aisle and then have a first dance with my dad, I wish my mother would dance though, I really don't even think he deserves the honor.
