When she broke the news to her stepmom, she reminded her that she didn’t say anything because of her request not to know what she wasn’t involved in.
Her stepmom was very upset and told her she couldn’t go to the wedding because she was still hurt. Her dad got involved and was angry with her for upsetting his wife. He told her she wouldn’t be invited to visit them anymore.
“I told him I have been the one making peace and apologizing since I was a child,” she said. “It is a pattern for [her] to blow things out of proportion and not take accountability for it.”
For months, she struggled to communicate with her dad, who began to say he wouldn’t go to the wedding. In the winter, she and her dad finally decided to sit with a counselor to see if they could fix things.
But before the session, he laid out a list of ridiculous rules he wanted her to follow at the wedding. Some included seating him far away from her mom, her mom and stepdad couldn’t participate in the ceremony with them, only he and his wife would be giving her away, etc.
She told her dad there was no way she’d abide by his rules at her wedding. Since then, things have gotten worse with her dad. He began spreading false rumors about her relationship with other relatives. The other day, when she asked him if he’d RSVP to her wedding, he told her he had booked a vacation instead.
Should she try and make things right with her dad and stepmom or leave them out of the wedding?
