I really need as much advice as possible. My dad is getting married in 2 months. Long story short: My dad and stepmom (I refer to her now) have been together almost 10 years, since I was 23. In the beginning, everything was ok. She is NOT a warm and fuzzy person, so it is hard to really get to know her. She is also very "assertive" and domineering, to the point that she knows everything, very strong personality. She has done some nice things for me, like editing my cover letter and resume. So, things were ok until 3 years ago, when they bought a house together. It seems like my dad has a whole new life. I am not comfy in their home. He has become really obnoxious, to the point he has made me cry. He tells me that it is my fault that I do not have a job because I am not agressive enough (believe me, that is so far from the truth). He tells me that SHE says I should be finding a job. She has NO idea how bad the market is here, as she is in healthcare and that is a really open field here. Then we have my stepsister. Oh boy...I need Dr. Phil. They planned the wedding date around HER schedule and my dad said he "hoped I would come." My husband may not be able to because of his job. My dad said they had to do it this way. He admitted to me he wanted to go away and get married, but stepsister whined and said she had to be there. Stepsister is 30 and married and beyond spoiled-mom pays all their bills and so does my dad at times. That is a whole other story. My dad also informed me that he has made "stepmom his #1 prioirty and he is leaving most of his savings to her." Now, this was out of the blue. I DO NOT discuss these things. I may add that my stepmom is quite well off and will be more than secure on her own. But I dont know why he just said that! My dad and I used to be super close. When he and my mom divorced, I went to live with him. He is like a totally different man. He constantly criticizes me and puts me down and is negative. I have been a great daughter to him, never gave him an ounce of trouble. I do not know how I am going to get through their wedding. I went to visit the other day and they were rude. It has gotten to the point that my husband has mentioned this and he NEVER gets involved or states anything about my family. He said my eyes look so sad after I talk with dad. He also said that once they are officially wed, my dad will barely contact me. Should I even go? They are not including me in anything. My friend offered to come as a buffer. I am really afraid that my stepsister is going to make a smart remark (last time it was that if SHE were looking for a teaching job, she would have one.) I know this is my side of the story, but I promise I have been good. It is like Cinderella. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks for reading!
