I'm getting married in 17 days and i received a call from my natural father
(my mum and him divorced when i was about 12 months old, mum remarried when i was 4) last night and he told me he won't be coming to my wedding(even though he told me months ago he would be). His excuse was because he won't know anybody there, and he'll feel like an alien. At first i was upset but now i couldn't care less. The way i see it is that he has issues that he has to deal with but they shouldn't involve me. He didn't guve me a proper reason, said he would talk to me about it some other time.My stepfather will be giving me away (I was thinking maybe he felt intimidated by my step-dad). I explained to my Natural father who will be giving me away and he seemed sorta ok.
What happens when i have children and i invite him to their christenings? and their school functions etc, will he not come?
I was just wondering how many people had a parent not come to their wedding, and how did they deal with it?
