So my father abandoned my family when I was 3, and my sister was six months old. He was abusive physically and verbally to my mother and us, and his absence was very tough financially and emotionally for me. I don’t even talk to him so of course he will not be at my wedding, or there to do a father daughter dance. I do not have any other male relatives/brothers I am close to. FH’s family can be a little overbearing, and while he does not care about doing a mother son dance, I know his mom will. I don’t want to do either, and just have our first dance and commence with the reception. Does this make me a terrible person? I would rather not be reminded of my familial drama/woes on my wedding day.
