Usually at weddings, the bride and the groom are the ones getting the gifts.

In Brelyn Bowman‘s case, when she got married to her husband Timothy Bowman, she decided to give her Christian pastor father, Michael Freeman, what we think is an EXTREMELY awkward gift that was possibly a bit TMI — a certificate of purity that proved she was a virgin.

If that wasn’t weird enough, she went to the lengths to have it signed by a Gyneclogist that proves her “hymen is intact” and then shared the pic on Instagram!

The certificate read:

“I have kept this commitment and present this certificate to my father Dr Michael A. Freeman to show how I have honored God and my earthly father in my body by maintaining my purity and that my hymen is intact on this 10th day of October 2015.”

The official document even contained a passage from Corinthians 6:20 that reads:

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

Not surprisingly, she received a ton of backlash online from people who thought it was SUPER weird and gross that Brelyn would share such intimate details with her father — and even weirder that she’d go so far to prove it.

At least one person replied to her online post by pointing out that proving that the “hymen is intact” is not an indicator of virginity.

While there have been several haters, they’ve also had some supporters as well as those in the middle who support the idea but believe publicly sharing the info is a bit much. One person posted a response saying:

“I applaud her but did this information really need to bd showed to the world. Seems like something that should have been kept private for the people who mattered, not for the world to see.”

Dr. Freeman doesn’t care though. The proud poppa took to Twitter to say:

The father of the bride also revealed that he was quite surprised by the gesture saying:

“I was totally unaware of what was about to take place. During the remarks, she shared that she wanted to honor me by not allowing any man to touch her before her husband.”

The pastor went on to say that all three of his children signed covenants to save themselves for marriage including his oldest daughter, Brittany, who gave him a certificate at her wedding six years ago.

We definitely get that everyone’s entitled to share whatever information they want. Some people are private, some live out loud.

Do they really deserve the negative backlash for their beliefs? We mean, as long as they aren’t judging others for theirs…

What do you think? Did the bride go too far here? Or is this not that crazy of an idea? Tell us in the comments (below)!
