Is your dad being reasonable or unreasonable in his expectations? I normally would say stick by your fiance and defend his timeline to your dad, assuring him that your fiance is responsible and will hold up his end, but it seems like your fiance is holding out and doing something that intentionally riles your dad up just to be a dick about it and it’s not worth it. Like I said, I normally would not give this advice because I believe couples need to be on the same team even if it means forsaking family . . . but in this case, I think your dad needs to be shown a little more respect.

It sounds like both dad and Fiance need to be a little more understanding with each other.  Dad can be a little more patient without getting upset and Fiance needs to put more effort forth in responding in a timely fashion.  It sucks that you’re put in the position you’re in because you love both of them and understand where both are coming from.  Maybe you could just explain to both what the other is feeling.  It’s kind of childish that they’re acting this way.
