i’m sorry you’re going through that.

I really suggest counceling for everyone. I know that seems like a pat answer, but I really think that could help you guys.

Ok well thats understandable.

Hmm.

Don’t think I’m saying you should be manipulative here…

Maybe you should sit down with your Dad on skype or something, so he could see your face? That might be better. and then I’d talk about the wedding. How you hope he will walk you down the asile…Daddy Daughter dance…The good stuff. And slowly work into the feelings you’ve had lately, mentioning how you’d love a btter relationship with your younger siblings…I think really if you make the effort to talk about everyone being an actua; family…Your Dad will look at the conversation asan actual talk and less about how in his mind you are blaming things on him.

I dont know him at all and only you can say if that would work. But maybe it couldnt hurt to try.

@glittermoon:  It’s ok. I personally know a woman kinda like your Stepmother. She is fine when my friend does for HER adults daughters but is angry when he does for HIS child, a child of his widow whome he was married to for over 30 years.

All I can see is jealousy and insecurity for her part. It’s a shame that your dad is being manipulated. However one day maybe he will see the light. My friend is getting fedup with his wife and is ready to kick her out. Maybe one day your dad will wise up and kcik her to the curb.

Can you ask your dad to go out one night one evening and spend some QT time together, just you and your brother??

There’s a fantastic Oscar Wilde quote that I suggest you share with your step-seeyounexttuesday:

“A man who marries his mistress leaves a vacancy in that position.”

I give you a lot of credit for putting in the effort to better your relationship with your father, I think I would have given up already. Good luck with the convo, hope it works out for the better!

The same thing happened to me.  Luckily he divorced the bitch.

The ONLY reason I was nice to her when they were married was because she got pregnant with my brother.  I seriously hope something bad happens to her because she is an evil person.  I actually eloped because I did not want her at my wedding.  They divorced the next year.

I wish I would have stood my ground back then instead of being the “better” person.  It’s one thing to be civil, but I don’t know that I would have gone out of my way anymore.  F THAT.

She may come and go, but you’ll always be his daughter.  I unfortunately waited too long to tell my dad how I felt (after they announced the split) and I think if I would have much earlier, our relationship would have been better.  Good luck.
