- Wedding: October 2015
We went to visit my father and his girlfriend last night. While I was in the bathroom, he told my dad, his GF and her daughter (14 y/o) that he bought me a ring. Without having to ask my father said, “well you definitely have my blessing.” Yay! Her daughter asked him if he carried the ring with him everywhere “like in the movies.” 🙂 (he doesn’t)
It’s not a big deal as in my dad would not have been upset in any way if he didn’t talk to him first, but my dad eats this stuff up. He loves to feel like he has some sort of control and is seen as such a “force to be reckoned with” lol. He is one of those guys who will never say to my face that he likes my BF, but tells everyone else (like I don’t talk to my aunts or brother lol).
This means it’s happening soon. Now I’m kind of glad he didn’t propose last week at the beach. My dad and I were never really close. He and my mother divorced when I was 22 and it drove more of a wedge between us. It took me almost 2 years to finally have it in me to meet his GF. Now I love her and her daughter, and the rest of her family. I would love for them to get married! My father and I are closer now, which I appreciate. I’m a nurse so I see a lot of people with strained relationships say that they wish they had been closer, or they should have let bygones be bygones before an accident or stroke or something.
So glad to know he approves!
Just figured you gals would appreciate this story!
