At weddings, we often shed several tears of happiness. We get choked up when the groom sees his bride for the very first time and the exchanging of the vows. Inside the reception, we instantly pat down our eyes again as a father whisks his little girl around the dance floor and a man and wife share their first married dance together. But it is the mother son wedding dance that really causes some of us to pat our eyes dry. For approximately one minute and thirty seconds we see a man transform back into a little boy as his mother (or grandmother, aunt, sister, friend) embraces him to a melodic tune. We watch them share a moment of pride, as a mother proudly releases her boy into another woman (or man’s) care.
