S/O and I are getting our daughter baptized on Sunday. And I haven't even told my mom yet. :-/ I ave a feeling she will try to guilt trip me into saying it's ok for her s/o to come, and I honestly don't want him there. At all. Now, he's a great guy. Makes my mom extremely happy. However, my dad and his feelings are above him. My mom left my dad in May 2009.....after 28 years of marriage. It was an UGLY divorce. Mom has obviously moved on. My dad however, is of the old Catholic mindset. Once you are married within the church, you are married.....regardless of a legal divorce. You are only not committing adultery if you petition the church for an annulment, and it's granted.
So,obviously I think it would be a huge slap in the face to my dad to have this other guy show up in our church for Maggie's baptism. And,honestly, my mom had told me back in November that she wouldn't come to it anyhow, because she didn't want to deal with my dad. Bt then a couple weeks ago it was that she would come and it wad up to myself and S/O about Steve.
But, I know my mom. It will all end up being turned around and about her. Ugh.
