“I promise to abstain from fornication ( rubbing and petting) but I will keep myself until I am united in marriage”.
When she was 13- years old Brelyn Bowman made a commitment to her father. She promised him that she would remain to “pure” until her wedding day.
Two weeks ago, after a long and Instagram-filled engagement Brelyn did the deed – she got married (and then probably did that other deed).
At her wedding not only was she presented with a marriage certificate but she had a certificate of her own for her father.
She presented him with a “Certificate of Purity” complete with a doctor’s signature that guaranteed her father her hymen was intact.
Brelyn Borman wrote on Instagram it was one of her favourite parts of the ceremony – being able to give her father that
creepy and weird purity certificate.
“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”
Her proud father, Michael Freeman, the founder and pastor of the Spirit of Faith Christian Center in Maryland in the US, shared the moment too that he found out about the state of his daughters vagina on his social media accounts.
With a proud dad humblebrag:
There framed between father and daughter is the “Certificate of Purity”, the second Dr Freeman has received after his oldest daughter too felt the need to show her worth through a doctor examining her hymen and signing off on it’s intactness for her dad’s approval.
The bride’s certificate has gone viral and is sparking debate across the world over the fact that the young bride felt she needed to prove her virginity to her father.On Instagram, one user questioned why a woman in 2015 felt the need to share details of her sex life with her father.
“This is like turning all intellectual and humanistic progress backward,” meducated22 wrote. “Back to the days of handing your father your wedding night bed sheets and possibly being killed for not having a hymen.”
