I Want to Sabotage My Daughter's Wedding
You will hate me for this, but I secretly want to sabotage my daughter's wedding. I am feeling terrible for even thinking this. I love my daughter so so so so much, but we have had a pretty strained relationship in the past.
I am on the verge of getting another divorce and my daughter called me up two months ago to announce that she's getting married. I immediately made this a reason to leave my home and fly to my daughter to help her out.
Her fiance is nice and everything but something bout him is just not right. I have met his family, and found that he too came from a broken one. He has three younger brothers and a single mom. I have formed a friendship with his mom, and I think they're wonderful...
My daughter's fiancee is currently helping to support his family and mom, and I don't think my daughter would have a very happy married life with his entire family clinging to him.
I have not told my daughter about my marriage going into shambles right now because I don't want to ruin all the excitement, but she's my only child and I want to be with her at this moment and Ive always dreamed for this to be a happy time for both of us, but its not!
I can't help but feel more hurt when ever I help out with the wedding planning. It reminds me of something I am about to lose -- my daughter and my marriage -- and I am more hurt that she notices her future mother in law being more excited and helpful in the whole process.
The whole wedding planning is bringing her and her mother in law closer than me and her.
I am feeling jealous and hurt and cynical and lonely.
