A heartbroken father has taken to the internet to ask for advice after his girlfriend of five years told him that she does not want his 11-year-old daughter at their wedding.
Taking to Reddit, the upset dad explained that his fiancée does not want his daughter from a previous relationship to attend their wedding.
“I have a daughter (P) from a previous relationship. I divorced my ex-wife on good terms and we share 50/50 custody of P. She is now 11. After I divorced my ex-wife I met my now [fiancée] (S).”
The man and his fiancée dated for five years and he was happy that she and his daughter were getting along well.
When he popped the question, S said yes and they immediately started planning their wedding together.
“She looked at venues and started asking her friends to be her bridesmaids. She then told me she wanted her niece to be a flower girl. Which I had no problem with, but I said I also wanted P to be a flower girl. S looked at [me] funny and then said that she didn’t think that P would ‘fit the part,’” she went on.
The father was left furious upon hearing his fiancee’s remarks.
“I got angry and told S that my daughter would be at our wedding,” he said.
“S started to become upset and said that the girls in the wedding were up to her and P wouldn’t be one of them. I told S that if P wasn’t in the wedding then there might not be a wedding. I stormed out and took P to get ice cream.”
People on Reddit were shocked by the fiancee’s decision, with many describing her as a ‘red flag.’
One Reddit user said: “This is a big red flag. If she doesn’t want to include her step daughter in her wedding then don’t expect she will include your daughter in her life…”
Another commented: “S just showed you her true feelings for P. You want the people who mean the most in your wedding. The fact that your fiancée, who I’m guessing is younger than you and this will be her first marriage, doesn’t think your daughter fits that description is extremely telling to me.”
