Call your dad’s bluff here.

How old are you? And why do you need your dads permission?
He’s acting childish, yikes.

(He also applied for his Visa as soon as my sister said she was interested)
anyway, the update is he is now no longer comming.
As he was going through the travel agent he was able to get refunded.
He told my sister and I he respects our fathers choice and doesn’t want to intrude. He is disappointed that he wasn’t given a chance, and sad that he won’t be able to celebrate with us ='( but he hopes in future my dad will come around, but it won’t stop the love he feels for my sister, and trying to be the best man he can be for her.
I pretty much bawled my eyes when he told me, so i guess my sister and I will have to do more trips to America in the near future now.
@SamanthaLovesJames: I have a few issues to disclose my age, because sadly I am getting quite old. But to add clarity to how silly this situation is- i’ll say i’m around 30.

If he or you are paying his airfare to attend, I think your father is being unreasonable. If you are expecting your father to pay, then yes, I think he has a right to be mad. More often than not +1’s are only invited if they are married or live together.

@Cheekyduck: Holy wow what the hell … is he being a dadzilla??? i never heard of one of those but does he not know this is your wedding? You were innocently trying to make your sister happy, like anyone wants to be alone at their sisters wedding … you were being kind and wonderful sister
he is being rude, does he not realize the more a controling parent tells you not to date someone you want them even more… and just b.c. he isnt making big money now does not mean he wont later … just b.c. he could have more school under his belt does not mean he wont go back … and if he treats his daughter right she is a lucky women b.c. alot of men don’t give there girl friends and wifes enough respect lots of men are total jerks the end all be all is not a paper saying i am this level of bla bla bla or a check for x amounts of zeros … if he treats her right he is a good man
don’t feel like you did a thing to your dad he is being nasty to your sister and her boyfriend and horrible to you causing drama b4 your wedding

Your sister’s Boyfriend or Best Friend is quite the man to put her and your wedding first, but I can’t say that about your father.

@iloverocks: My dad is not paying for his airfair, My sisters Boyfriend or Best Friend fronted the money for that. He offered to pay rent while he was staying at my house.
But he is mad that I “encouraged” my sister in his words, rather than shun her for her choices.
My partner who i marry in two days use to work in a call centre and wasn’t going to school.
But i could see he had passion, strong family values as was a nice guy that would treat me right. The job thing, education thing, comes in time.
I believe its not about a finished product, its about growing with another person. It’s not fair to judge someone based on a piece of paper.
