Step-Dad REFUSES To Fund His Daughter’s Wedding When He Discovers The Truth.
It’s not everyday a daughter or son gets married. It’s a moment of mixed emotions; on one hand parents are excited for the next step their child is taking into adulthood and of course, the bigger the wedding the bigger the cost.
Whoever is paying for the wedding knows too well how quickly things add up. The traditional list of flowers, clothes, food, venue, and alcohol is expensive but seeing the smile and joy it will bring an adult child is worth it for the proud parent.
Even if the dad is not the biological father, if he has been physically, emotionally, and financially involved raising the son or daughter, the occasion is just as important and heartfelt. It’s said weddings and funerals bring out the best and worst in people. One man had a rude and painful awakening as the wedding day for his step-daughter got closer and closer.
One step-dad was feeling really happy at the upcoming nuptials of his step-daughter.
He never married the mother but they lived as common-laws raising her daughter together for the last 10 years. His partner and her daughter have been pouring their heart and soul planning the perfect wedding.
His step-daughter graduated last Christmas. She enjoyed a free education since the man who has been her father for the last 10 years paid over $40,000 for her to complete her degree.
As a new graduate, however, she has been unable to land a new job. Nonetheless, to make sure she gets around easily to apply for employment and go to job interviews the man bought his daughter her own car. She also lives at home with them with no plans to move out till she marries.
The man stepped up when the biological father did not.
Not only was he part of her everyday needs like providing a comfortable home, food, and clothes, he was around for the important things. Everything from helping her with homework, boy issues, or simply going for a walk when she was feeling down.
The biological father never contributed financially to his daughter's needs.
He was known to avoid any type of responsibility that comes with being an adult and providing for his child.
The "real" dad was in and out of his daughter's life. Whenever he left, the girl would be devastated and heartbroken.
The mom never went to court to demand child support. She was always more than willing to give the man chance after chance, only to end in disappointment every time. The stepdad was convinced his partner' "still loves him and wants him in her life."
