19-year-old hopeful made a promise to his dad never to kiss a girl.
On last night's episode of American Idol, more contestants were put through to Hollywood along with others whose auditions were eccentric, to say the least. To us, one young man who did not get the golden ticket stuck out in the crowd. Bruce is a 19-year-old who has never been with a girl, never even a kiss. His father has instilled the value in him that he must wait until he's married to pursue a woman in an intimate way or, apparently, in any way. We think most parents hope their teenager chooses abstinence over sex, especially when stories like Jamie Lynn pop up. But never-been-kissed at 19—is this healthy? Does this son's promise to his father go too far?
