I've been fumbling in the doldrums of wedding afterlife all because of one incident that took place during May. The incident stems from an area that I really would like to touch on after the recaps since there are many people who have experience in it... And, we get married too. So to make a long story short for now...
My Father told me through email that he would not be attending the wedding. He did this 3 weeks before the date and on my Mom's birthday.
It stung. The effects of a complicated relationship with one or both of your parents always do.
Ironically, in the email, my Father implied that only he could walk me down the aisle (being my Dad and all).
My Mother raised her daughters to think better than that.
