Fathers come in all shapes and sizes and let’s be honest, not all of them are good and not all of them are around. I have been lucky enough to be raised by a man who was good to me, even though we nearly killed each other from time to time.
If I didn’t have him, here’s who I would choose:
- George Banks (Father of the Bride)
He did everything he could to give his daughter the wedding she wanted and every time I watch it I feel feelings.
- Arthur Weasley (Harry Potter)
Did you honestly think there was a chance where Arthur would not make this list?
He worked hard to provide for his huge family (and family friends) and still managed to provide them with attention, love and mostly, good morals. Good on you, Author.
- Marlin (Finding Nemo)
He went across the world to find his kid fish even when Nemo did exactly what his dad told him not to do. Plus, it was obvious to see how hard it must have been for someone as fearful and neurotic as he, to venture out and find his Nemo.
- Mr. Bennet (Pride and Prejudice)
I adored Mr. Bennet and Lizzy’s relationship and when she confided in him, confessing her love for Mr. Darcy, his response was perfect:
“I cannot believe that anyone can deserve you… but it appears I am overruled. So, I heartily give my consent. I could not have parted with you, my Lizzy, to anyone less worthy.”
- And last, but definitely topping the list in my opinion (I will explain this on another day) is Bryan Mills (Taken)
Come on, Liam Neeson fought, he physically fought for his daughter (and then he fought for her again and again and again)
There are many more of them that should have made the list, but hey, there’s always next year. Who are your favourites?
And Happy Father’s Day!
