Weddings are rough on our dear old Dads.
Traditionally, they pay for our weddings.
And they pay, emotionally, too.
Rationally, your Dad’s thrilled about your wedding
He's happy you’ve found the right guy, and he’s excited about the prospect of grandchildren.
Emotionally, your Dad may be reeling
And he may not even know it.
Weddings can ignite deep, unruly, Oedipal, raw stuff for some Dads.
It's normal for Dads to feel really sad he’s losing you. Engagement, as I describe in my book, can be a time of grief and loss for everyone in your family.
