Many people come from broken families and divorces. As a kid, having a step mom or dad can actually be quite something to get used to. Most of the time you just dont get along with them or they dont know how to handle you. But here is a great story to show people that step family members can still be family even though they are not blood related.
Movies always have a life struggle that many of have to deal with, but movies always tend to over dramatize it to make for a more appealing movie. In the case of step parents, it always seems like the end of the world type of battle between enemies.

The wedding was made extremely special by this gesture. There was supposedly already tension between the two dads before the wedding, probably because they disagreed who got the honour of giving their daughter away.
