I am 23 and finally marrying my partner of 6years. We have two llittle boys smile
Though ! My father is not happy about the wedding celebration at all.. pretty much wants nothing to do with it.
I have always been pretty close to my dad, but since my mum and him split 3 years ago we arnt as close. Still talk but not like it used to be.
So we announce we are getting married and my dads comment is "why would you waste your money on that?". It like just because his marraige didnt work I shouldnt even bother.
I sent out save the date cards a few days ago and gave one to my dad. While I wasnt present he said to my sister that I am wasting my money, should be getting married and the family doesnt even get along so I am just causing trouble and also its too akward etc. he was apparently going off his head about it sad.
Now that my sister has told me this I just feel sad, and heartbroken, that my dad cant even be happy for me. My partner and I have done well in our relationship, we both have good jobs, we would do anytihng for our boys and we enjoy been together doing things together and everything else that comes with been in a little family. But its obviously not good enough for my dad....
So at the moment I feel like telling him not to even bother coming to the wedding.. its just so weird as I could cope with it a little better if my dad and I never got along, but its not the case. Its all because he will feel uncomfortable about been there..
What should I do ! If i try to talk to him he will probably go off.. Just feel like not inviting him or his side of the family.. how sad is that..
