I am getting married next summer. We are keeping the wedding very small (50 people), partly because of location and partly because of cost. My mom keeps giving my grief because I do not want to invite my father. I have not seen the man in over 10 years. I don't talk to him. I send him a Christmas card each year, and that's the extent of our communication. My step-dad raised me. He is my DAD. Not some other guy I barely know. My step-dad will give me away, because he's the one that has been there for me. I don't want to bump someone from the list that is actually a part of my life for a stranger. My mom thinks I'm not being fair and that he should have the choice to come if he wants. I think that he's lost that choice a long time ago. Am I being evil?
