Daughter Invites Mother’s Boyfriend For The Wedding But Not Her Father’s Wife Of 8 Yrs.
Weddings are meant to be fun and to be celebrated with the people you love. However in this story a bride had her demand. Read the story to know what it is and let us know how you would handle the situation.
My daughter (27F) is getting married in the fall. I (58M, het dad) am supposed to pay for the wedding, that’s what we agreed on. We got the save the date invitations a few days after I put the payments through my bank (they need to be approved, so no money has been paid yet).
My wife isn’t invited to the wedding. I have been divorced for 15 years and married to my wife now for 8 years. My daughter never really liked my wife, they didn’t get along well. My other two kids love her.
I called my daughter and asked her why my wife wasn’t invited. She said that it’s her wedding day and she only wants to invite her real family. I said “well did you invite Mom’s BF?” and she said yes. I said “well okay, then you should invite My Wife too, or I am not paying for the wedding”.
She declined and said she isn’t inviting my wife. I told her I’ll cancel the payments then, and she didn’t believe me. I cancelled them and my daughter is now super pissed at me, as is my ex wife. What are your opinions? Did I over react? Please don’t be afraid to criticize. Thank you for your time in advance.
