@ValleyGirl1979:  Try talking to your dad? Though honestly I don’t think that’ll do much.

Talk to your mom, if she’s in this picture. Another member of the family who might be able to tell you what your dad says when you and your FI aren’t around. Does he maybe think your FI is being less than genuine in these attentions to you and your family? Does he feel like it puts him in a bad light?

One thing I always worried about, as the GF at least, was not to step on the matriarch of the family’s toes. I did not want to be seen as just some girl who is coming in to steal the mom’s baby. Is there any chance your dad sees him less as a Prince Charming, and more as man who has come to steal his little girl and his place as man of the family?

My dad’s like this too. Hates my husband with a passion. I’m not even sure he knows we got engaged, let alone married. If talking openly isn’t an option, write him a letter, or speak to someone else about it, see if you can find out why he dislikes your fiance so much.
