Another one of my favs! Dancing with my first love! ❤️ I was able to present a certificate of purity to him signed by my doctor that my hymen was still intact. Also the covenant he gave me when I was 13. When you honor God, your life will automatically honor others! I love you daddy @drmikefreeman
A Prince George’s County, Maryland, bride is facing backlash after the above father-daughter dance photo from her wedding went viral, in which she writes that she presented her pastor father with a certificate from her doctor proving that her hymen was still intact, having successfully saved her virginity for marriage. Brelyn Bowman explained to Good Day DC this week why she decided to sign a pledge at just 13 to remain a virgin until marriage, as well as her father’s reaction to the certificate.
“He was so excited because it’s not nothing he required. He didn’t ask, ‘I need you to go and present this.’ It was something because I kept my word,” said Brelyn Bowman. “My sister, who was a virgin when she got married, did the same thing. And she was an example for me, so now I can be an example for others.”
