When Her Dad Refused To Walk Her Down The Aisle, Her Boss Did Something Amazing

MARCH 11, 2017  —  By Corinne Sanders

Jennifer had been with her partner, Sam, for 11 years when they decided to get married.

The women from Taiwan had already faced many difficulties in their years as a same-sex couple and didn't expect others to be happy or supportive about the news -- in fact, Jennifer's parents had made it clear that they never approved of the relationship. But when they told her they wouldn't come to the wedding and cut off all contact, she was devastated. Her father refused to even walk her down the aisle.

Though same-sex marriage isn't legal in Taiwan, it was important to Jennifer and Sam to have a symbolic wedding.

Jennifer must have been heartbroken thinking that nobody would walk her down the aisle, but that's when her boss stepped in.

John Li, CEO of HSBC Bank in Taiwan, where Jennifer is employed, offered his arm to her in place of her father. She was worried about the way she'd be treated at work, but her coworkers completely accepted her and came to celebrate with her as well!

And thanks to their support, Jennifer and Sam had an amazing wedding that they'll never forget.

“We cried because we never thought we would make it this far,” Jennifer said.

To learn more about this beautiful couple and their special day, check out the video below.

I really have to commend Li and the rest of Jennifer's coworkers for supporting her when even her own parents didn't. Share this heartwarming story if you're inspired by their kindness.
