Glad you were there for your friends' daughter and her wife at their wedding.

I hope your friend lives long enough to ditch the boyfriend and make peace with her daughter.

One of the last times I spoke with my father was to tell him that Beth had proposed . . . his reply? "That's right, you people can do that out there" (we live in Massachusetts).

He died last year, and will never get a chance to see how happy I am or be a part of our lives.

What a sad story. Personally if my son found someone ( when he is older ) that loved him I would be happy.

It is only your friend that will lose in the end.

I am glad you had a lovely day and i wish the brides all the happiness for their future x

So glad you made it to the ceremony. You did the right thing by deleting the email without a response but it didn't deserve one.

"Update 12/19/11

I just wanted everyone to know that we attended the ceremony and it was lovely. Both the Brides were beautiful, and they were surrounded by people who loved and supported them. We had a wonderful time. Both of them were so happy and full of love for each other, it was touching and sweet.

On a personal note, to find love is a wonderful gift but to have someone return your love is truly a blessing.

Unfortunately my friend did not attend her daughter's wedding, and she did send me a very nasty email, which I did not mention to the Bride's both of them asked me if I knew if she was going to attend. I just said I did not know, something's are better left unsaid or repeated. I could not be sadder for my friend and the loss of not seeing her daughter on her day. On the email that she sent, I did not respond. I just deleted it and sent it to the trash as it was full of garbage."

You did the absolutely right things. Most importantly, you went and supported those loving women, you didn't tell them about the biological mother's unpleasantness and you didn't rise to the bait of a woman caught in her own trap right now. She's gnawed her leg off and will suffer for the rest of her life. It may get better, but she's broken something permanently.

I hope the two of them go on to have a fabulous life together!

Just seeing your original post and update now. You handled it PERFECTLY. The only thing I would have done differently is I WOULD have sent a reply to her last email. I would have responded with what you wrote in this thread:

Dear (name of friend):
We attended your daughter's ceremony and it was lovely. Both the Brides were beautiful, and they were surrounded by people who love and support them. We had a wonderful time. Both of them were so happy and full of love for each other, it was touching and sweet.

To find love is a wonderful gift but to have someone return your love is truly a blessing.

Best,
LovesTimone

Add me to that list.

How terribly sad that mother let some small-minded idiot do her thinking for her, and what a shame she did not do what mothers are supposed to do and put her child first. If any man told me not to go to my daughter's wedding, I'd kick him out the door so hard they'd arrest him for speeding in Spokane.

Wow, thank you so much. I would be honored to have you as a friend and please be prepared to support you friend when the jerk leaves the scene. This will go down as one of the great regrets in your friends life.

Wow! OP, you really did handle this with grace. It's to bad that your friend has let a jerk of a man come between her and her daughter. Very sad. I think you handled it perfectly.

Congratulations to the new couple!
