- Wedding: June 2017
I love my dad to death, but growing up he honestly was never really there for me. When I was in high school, he moved to Florida for 5 years with his girlfriend and her kids. I was never invited down there and he only came to visit twice. After leaving her he has gotten better, but not completely. He does try to spend a bit more time with me.
My stepdad and I have definitely had our moments butting heads. Moments my dad knows about & has pissed him off. It’s been a very long time but my dad brings it up a lot. However, if we all have to be around each other he is very cordial to him & My mom. My mom & him have always tried to have somewhat of a decent relationship for us kids while growing up. Anyway, my stepdad honestly has done a lot more for me than my dad really ever has. I think deep down my dad knows that, and that may be why he gets mad when he brings my stepdad up.
So with that being said, I’m getting married in June. I want both my dad and my stepdad to walk me down the aisle… how do I go about telling my dad? I know he is going to be so mad, and he’s the type of person that tries the guilt trip thing and twists things around making you feel like crap. I’m honestly dreading telling him, and I’ve already brought up to my mom & stepdad that I want them both to walk me down so I don’t want to back out of it. Anyone have any advice?
