It seems there is a new custom among whacked out American Fundamentalists called a Purity Ball.

The concept appears to involve fathers, acting as the owners of their daughters, pledging to protect the sexual purity of their daughters.

Meanwhile the daughters pledge:
I pledge to remain sexually pure...until the day I give myself as a wedding gift to my husband. ... I know that God requires this of me.. that he loves me. and that he will reward me for my faithfulness.

I always thought that the father transferred ownership of his daughter during the wedding ceremony when he gave the bride to the groom. If that is correct, then surely the girl is not entitled to act as an autonomous agent and give herself away on the wedding night.

Maybe this difficulty could be resolved by rewording the girls pledge to refer to a transfer of ownership between the father and the groom.

Pretty creepy stuff, huh?
