my father disowned me and boycotted my wedding... when i call my mom he pretends not to know who i am when he picks up the phone

my father-in-law, however, is a damn fine fellow and fills in quite nicely.


Is this b/c of the religion thing?

did you disagree a lot growing up? me and my dad are identical in personality and stubbornness- therefore we get along swimmingly or not at all. Thankfully as I've matured, we get along great 99% of the time we are together.

I hear ya Kurb. Dealing with dads can be difficult.

I think the best thing we can do is learn from it in how we relate to our sons. I am open and honest and willing to listen to them at any point. I hug them every day and let them know they are loved. Thats our most important job, imo.

I have two girls but still a dad. I say the biggest thing we can do for our kids is say I'm sorry or I was wrong. That will endear them to you as much as a big trip or what have you.
That will help them feel like you are approachable which is huge in he teen years.

My sperm donor left when I was 1 or 2. Went years without talking, saw him for 1 Christmas when I was around 8 I think, only time I ever remember. More years no contact, around when I was 14 he called saying he wanted a relationship and stuff. Called about once a week for like a month then stopped. Last year his mom died, said he wanted me and my brothers there, blah, blah, blah. Saw him when we went there, he repeated how he wanted a relationship, was sorry about stuff, more crap. Haven't talked to him since. My point being: quit yer bitching. Some people don't even have dads.

Jk. Just feeling like an asshole today

I have a great relationship with my father. I value it tremendously and know not everyone is lucky enough to have what I have. I used to take it for granted but that all changed about 6 years ago.

Wow, that must be pretty hard to swallow?

Can't imagine cutting someone out of my life because of the work they choose to support their family.
