Where do I begin? I grew up in the projects. Didn’t really have a dad (he would come around twice a year or so and take me to taco bell-until I was about 13 then never saw him again) my mom was young when she had me and a severe alcoholic- therefore my grandma raised me. Well fast forward 20 years. I finished school, finished college, and have a cozy little life in the burbs. My grandma passed in 2010. My mom calls every now and then. We don’t have the best of relationships, but phone calls are a start. I have a friend that works in the court system. I had her look up my dad. Turns out he had a court date that very next week-so I took a vacation day and went. Surprisingly he recognized me. Invited me over. I met my brother (SMALL WORLD- My brother plays football with my fiancé) and various other family members. Well he drank and drank and drank. My “dad” turns out is also an alcoholic. Started telling me about how he used to pistol whip “******” for fun. And then his dog started acting up barking and almost bit me. Well he started threatening that he would shoot the dog dead in the head and told my fiancé he would slap Jesus off the cross if he ever thought about crossing him. WTF right!? Needless to say, I left, and never went back. Ok. Now I’m getting married. My fiance’s 2 brothers are in the wedding and asked my brother to be in the wedding. So… I don’t care for my mom but she wants to come to the wedding- should I? I don’t care for my dad and I can’t have him snapping out at my wedding but I know my brother will probably tell him- should I invite him?
