Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
For a brief back-story, I have never been a true daddy's girl. Don't get me wrong, I love my dad! But he kind of seemed to opt out on the whole 'raising me' thing. I don't even recall any actual conversations one on one with him until he and my mom divorced, and he remarried.
Then of a sudden he was my best friend. I'm not complaining, I just know my life would have been alot different (better?) if he took the time to get involved before I was 20. Just saying.
Now here's the ISH:
I'm a young mother, so I feel like I am constantly under the spotlight in my family. Everyone is in my business, and when I got engaged, that was no exception, They wanted to know everything about my FH that they could know. And his background isn't spotless.
But as I always say, Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future.
So I don't know if my father even approves of me marrying him! He keeps buying me books titled things like "20 things women do to screw up their life" etc.
Traditionally the bride's father foots the bill (which I would NEVER want him to do), but he hasn't even offered to contribute.
Is there a polite way to bring it up? Since we're paying for it ourselves, its considerably stressful and we'd really love some help! And lately with everything going on, we're struggling!
How do I ask him without putting pressure on him to help?
Thanks so much girls,
