Here’s an update from a previous story about a man wanting his daughter to participate in his wedding. After his fiancee told him his daughter “didn’t fit the part,” tensions rose, risking the marriage.
Recapping What Had Happened
The original poster, Henry, last stepped out to grab ice cream with his daughter, Diana, after arguing with his fiancée, Rachel.
Many family members told him he was overreacting, but he didn’t think so.
The following day, Henry went home to visit Rachel. She was sitting quietly in the kitchen, so Henry joined her.
Henry quickly broke the silence and gently asked Rachel why she didn’t want Diana to participate in their wedding.
However, he needed to prepare for what he would hear next.
A Truth Hard to Swallow
Rachel told Henry she hoped he would become a “holiday visit–only dad.”
She wanted to avoid Diana attending their wedding so she wouldn’t be included in their photos.
After hearing Rachel’s response, Henry kept cool and pulled Rachel’s engagement ring off her finger.
Rachel’s eyes immediately started to tear up, and she begged Henry to not end their marriage.
Putting Family First
Unfortunately, the damage was done, and Henry told Rachel to move out her belongings by the following week.
He allowed her to stop by when Diana wasn’t home.
Pack Your Things and Leave
The house Rachel was staying in was under Henry’s name, but he allowed her to take her belongings.
Shortly after, Rachel stormed out.
Preparing for Life After the Breakup
Henry’s now ex-mother-in-law (i.e., Rachel’s mother) knocked on his door, stating he was being unreasonable.
However, Henry couldn’t imagine seeing Diana only a few times a year.
Embracing a New Plan with the Daughter
Henry was sitting on his couch in disbelief at what had just happened. He couldn’t believe Rachel wanted him to give up spending time with Diana.
Be Strong for Your Daughter
“Shocking, but try and not show too much drama to your daughter so she can just accept the superficial story of the woman,” one person suggested.
Made the Right Choice
“You made the right decision by calling it off,” another said. “You put your daughter first like a good parent should. You and your daughter are so much better off without someone like that in your lives.”
Transition out of a Toxic Relationship
The silver lining in this story is that Henry and Diana left for Hawaii, where Henry’s honeymoon would have occurred.
