Parents, especially fathers tend to always be overprotective towards their daughters. As fathers, what they want is for their daughters to have a happy normal life, hopefully with a husband and children. But, often than not, their children tend to have plans of their own. Some don’t want to get married so soon, some don’t want to get married at all, and some choose to marry someone who their parents can’t accept.
A Hong Kong billionaire has recently been talked about on social media for offering 180 million dollars to any man who gets to marry his daughter.
Chao Sze-Tsung Cecil is a known businessman in Hong Kong. He is the owner of Cheuk Nang Holdings Ltd. and he is known for his luxury apartment developments. Basically, he is the man who has everything in life, including a beautiful daughter named Gigi.

Unfortunately for him, Gigi’s heart was caught by another woman who is now her wife. As a traditional Chinese man, he has never considered his daughter’s relationship as something real.
Thus, making the 180 million dollar offer open to every man in the world. In 2012, his initial offer was 60 million dollars, which obviously made the headlines during that time. Now, he increased his offer to 180 million eager to get Gigi married to a man.

Gigi Chao gave a letter to her father saying:
“As your daughter, I would want nothing more than to make you happy. But in terms of relationships, your expectations of me and the reality of who I am, are not coherent. I know it’s difficult for you to understand how I could feel romantically attracted to a woman; I suppose I can’t really explain it either. It just happens, peacefully and gently, and after so many years, we still love each other very much.”
Gigi also expressed that if her father cannot accept her decision he should at least treat her partner with respect.

It is natural for a parent to want the best for their children. However, parents should also acknowledge the fact that their child is like every other individual on Earth who deserves to make decisions on their own. Everyone on Earth deserves to choose the things and people who will complete their lives, regardless of what or who it is.
