- Wedding: May 2015
I am getting engaged very soon (probably within the next week). I have a rocky relationship with my dad. I used to be very close to him, since I hated my mom, but we ended up having a falling out over something very stupid with his girlfriend who is now my stepmom. I didn’t talk to him for about 2 years, but recently in the past few years we started talking on and off again, but we are still not really close like I would like to be. We are both very similar and suck at keeping in touch. Being that I am getting engaged soon I would like to burry the hatchet and become close with him and my stepmother again. I was thinking about sending him an email after we get engaged, but he has money and I am worried he will think I am just saying these things to him to try and get money out of him (especially since my mom advised me that whether I like it or not she will be calling him and asking him to contribute to out wedding) I honestly do not expect anything out of him money wise, SO and I have plenty of money and resources to pay for our own wedding. It’s just with getting married and in the future having children I would like him to be a part of mine and my future childrens lives. I would also like him and my stepmother to be actively involved in the wedding and the planning as mine and SO’s mother will be. Has anyone every had to deal with anything like this before? Any advice?
