I need some advice about handling a father-daughter dance. I really don’t want one.
In the past he has taken money out of my bank account and stolen my identity (ruining my credit and leaving me in debt). He has always openly ignored my phone calls or any plans with me unless it was convenient. When I try to talk to him, he just screams and me and will pretend that I don’t exist until he has calmed down and then acts like nothing ever happened. My parents are still together and my mother and I are very close. She is walking me down the aisle but wants me to have a father-daughter dance. She also has always insisted that I just keep the peace so I always have to pretend like things are okay with my father. I don’t want to have a giant fall-out at my wedding over this but I also don’t want to pretend that I am happy to be dancing with someone that I borderline detest. Any thoughts?
One a side note, he did walk my sister down the aisle and give her away. She has always gotten preferential treatment from him, so it is not as if i am denying him his only chance at the experience.
