This kind of attitude directly descends from medieval concepts that a woman is a man’s property, to be passed from dad to husband, with no autonomy of her own.
Luttrell is certainly thinking ahead — his daughter is only 2 years old!
Okay, so in part, he’s joking and over-exaggerating.
Do you have rules for who your kids can and can not date?
