As I recall, she has a perfectly good stepfather, John Abbot. Guess she
forgot about him. What a weird choice!

John Abbot? Have I forgotten a storyline?
"Out of the 10Base-T, through the router, down the T-1.
over the leased line, off the bridge, past the firewall
...nothing but Net.
Oh please~!! Any girl who had a dad as wonderful as mine would never miss
the opportunity to have her "Daddy" see her down the isle--business woman
of the 90's or not!
You probably forgot that Crickets mother, who died of AIDS,
was married to John Abbott for a short period of time.
Victor has more the style i want to see. John Abbot is Mr. Perfect. Make
Y&R part of your name.
The modern day meaning is still much the same as a warning
symbol to other males that you already belong to a man as his
property. As a modern day woman, I have not worn a wedding
ring since I do not wish to be seen as someone else's property.
Do you not think it odd that most men do not wear wedding
I also laugh at the marriage vows, that proclaim the bride
and groom as "man" and wife, like you need a minister or
other offical to pronounce you a man. I like Husband and Wife
better and think that more appropiate.
The old custom of Honeymoons sounds cute though, dating
back to when men stole their wives from the next village and
hid them out til the coast was clear.

Probably another plot device to get Nikki's goat--or maybe Victoria's...We
all know what a hard time Nikki and her "children" have whenever Vic pays
any attention to anyone but them.
Next plot: Vicki and Bug vie for the affections of Daddy Vic? Gotta love
those dysfunctional Newmans and their extended family.
Never mind the stepfather...she has a perfectly good FATHER in Jim
Granger!!! Anyone who's been watching the show for a few years can't
forget all the time spent on the Bug's search for: first her
mother...then her father and so on and so on!! That was when it stopped
being the Y&R show...changing to the Cristine Blair Show, and it doesn't
look like things are going to improve. All I can say is thank God for
VCR's and the fast-forward button!!

why did that make me think of the old adage
"you get what you pay for"?
Sometimes a career woman, especially who's been married
previously, might prefer to be given away by a close friend
instead of her father. Nothing wrong with that. Obviously,
Chris and Victor have become comfidants and she has (apparently)
looked upon him as a father figure. Perhaps at this time in her
life she felt closer to him than to her father or stepfather.

...or not be given away at all. She's not a piece of property, just changing

Gee, in that case why didn't she just ask Danny to give her away. She
could have worn the red dress and it would have been sort of like
seeing the changing of the guard at Buckingham palace.
