Mother-In-Law Bans Bride’s Disabled Father From Attending Wedding Because He Might “Traumatize” Guests.
One of life’s greatest blessings is a father’s love for his daughter. The link between a father and his daughter is exceptional and unique. However in this story a daughter was engrossed in the excitement of preparing her upcoming wedding, when she would finally tie the knot with a ‘wonderful guy,’ but her soon-to-be mother-in-law made a suggestion that broke her heart. Read the story to know what it is and let her know what she should do.
I am 27 years old and engaged to an amazing guy. When I was a little girl, my dad was involved in a really bad accident and was burned over a large portion of his body. He lost part of one limb and has some serious disfigurement. He has been a great dad and I never think about it.
A few weeks ago, my fiancé started acting strange when we talked about the wedding. I asked him what was up and he avoided the question. Then his mom called me out of the blue and told me that she didn’t think that my dad should come to the wedding. She thinks that he will upset the guests and “traumatize” any children who might be there.
She is suggesting that we have a private family ceremony before the big blowout. I got upset and my mom asked why. When I told her, she said that she and my dad understand, which only makes me feel worse. Maybe my future MIL has a point, but I would really rather disinvite HER than my dad or is this situation enough to break up?
