Where better to look for a mate for her than in a Christian publication?

What is the problem?

Whatever happened to letting a daughter grow up and fine her own mate? This is the the type of helicopter parenting that is one step away from an arranged marriage.

There were a lot fewer ‘Christian’ divorces when more marriages were arranged.

LOL

It’s your take the daughter would have no say in this?

Where did you come up with that?

Maybe the daughter is okay with it. She may not want to be the initiator, and wants the protection of her father. She may be looking for a rarefied subgroup that isn't available in her community. At 26, if she doesn't want "helicopter parenting" she need not accept it.

Letting daughters “find their own mate” often leads to her and her children coming home to share your retirement. Surely you know someone like that.

There is a movement where fathers rule their daughters lives until the father finds a husband for her. Then he probably runs both of their lives.
