Aww that sucks!  Weddings are happy occasions, but they often also highlight painful truths in our lives that we’d usually rather not dwell on.  I’d say to talk to him and tell him how you feel, but only you know if that would just estrange him more.

It sucks when parents don’t do right by their children (been there); I hope you can put this aside and focus on the relationship you chose instead of the one that came with the deal!

We have something like that happening with our family just different. xD

I am sorry you are going through this, it is not easy and emotions are very conflicting. 

You can try talking with your father, but I completely understand if you don’t want to! I surely don’t want to talk to my father-in-law right now. Give yourself sometime to work through these emotions. 

Seriously though….that is aggravating and hurtful!

Wow. That truly must be confusing and very painful.  I’m so sorry.

I obviously do not know anything about your family situation other than what you’ve written, and I’m trying to come up with some plausible explanations. Is your stepbrother very young perhaps?  Would your dad maybe be thinking that you and your Fiance have more wherewithal to pay for your wedding, vs. a much younger stepbrother who is expecting a child with his now fiancee? Or, perhaps your stepmother brings in most of their combined income, and she is adamant about spending their money to help her son?

I am sorry they are treating you both differently- that is really sad 🙁
