- Wedding: June 2013
To really convey how big this is for me, you need some backstory. My father has been against me being with FI from the start. One, because my dad has “no one will ever be good enough for my daughter” syndrome. Two, because my dad was raised in a very bigoted household, and as such can be a bit of a bigot himself (although he IS getting over it, slowly but surely) and my FI and I are an interracial couple.
I’ve been with FI for three years now, and he has NEVER been to my house. Now, this is partly due to the fact that we’re both in college and don’t go to our hometowns much. But it’s also due to the fact that my father has said he wasn’t welcome. In fact, not a single one of my boyfriends has ever been over to my house.
Now, with all of that in mind, imagine my shock when my father asked me if my FI would like to spend our Thanksgiving break at our house this year. I was absolutely stunned. I’m still a bit stunned, actually. This means that my dad is actually making an effort to get to know my FI! Sooo excited!! 😀
