Dad dating someone my age
But she doesn't have anything else, and she feels like she just got told "you're old, you're ugly, I have no use for you any longer" and to say that to someone who's entire identity revolves around their physical appearance...you could not say anything more psychologically damaging (of course my father never said that, but that's what she heard).
My whole family was there and we were just dumbfounded, grief-stricken having to fly to Virginia (including my first step-mom and stepsisters) where my sister lived.He's so in love with this woman (or something) that he gave my mom everything she wanted so they could get divorced super fast and run down the aisle. My future stepmother asked me to be one of her bridesmaids in the wedding and I respectfully declined (to her credit she really is trying to build a relationship with me, but step mother?? ), but I feel like I should go, because it really is important to my dad, and as much of a bastard as he can be, he is my dad and I do love him and he has been through a lot of shit with me over the years.But my mother is going to feel so betrayed if I go (she has made this clear) that I don't know what to do.Besides being a trophy wife, I guess her other accomplishment is being a mother, so I understand her holding on pretty tight.She had the sense to say at the hotel during the funeral and burial. Sitting in between my parents and we're all just crying our eyes out at the 21-gun salute and when they handed the flag to her husband. I don't even know what I would do in that situation.She had the sense to say at the hotel during the funeral and burial.

I will end my rant and really think he was one of those people who just couldn't be alone. At least your dad invited you but it must be hard being torn between respecting your mother's wishes and wanting to please him. Have you talked to other family members who may be more objective? You need more time to think this over, and I wouldn't blame you for not attending the way he dirted your mother like that. ^My mother is very upset and she has a right to be, I don't blame here in any way for that. You have to understand too that my mother is a woman who NEVER accomplished anything in her life besides being a trophy wife.Sorry you got put in this uncomfortable position Mia. Asking you to stand up as a bridesmaid to me is asking a bit much. My dad got married the third time and didn't tell us (they lived in Michigan) You know how we found out?He brought the woman to my sister's funeral and said "This is my new wife" so nonchalantly.This woman was a few years older than my dad and don't know what he saw in her.But he was pretty wealthy so she latched onto him quickly.After almost thirty years of marriage, my father divorced my mother a year ago (divorce was officially finalized six months ago) because he fell in love with this total ditz of a woman who was working as a model/secretary/barista/whatever.
