Daughter Wants Her Parents To Be Nothing More Than Guests In Her Wedding And Grandparents To Do Rituals

Tragedy struck when, at the age of eight, the OP’s aunt, her husband, and Nana were killed in a fatal car accident. In the aftermath, the OP’s parents took in their three orphaned cousins, leading to a shift in family dynamics and financial strain. The emotional neglect became apparent as the OP’s parents focused intensely on the needs of the newly adopted triplets, causing the OP to lose her hobbies and eventually discover that her college fund had been drained for her cousins’ education.

The situation further unraveled when the OP’s maternal grandparents revealed the truth about the depleted college fund and the threats from her parents to keep this information hidden. This revelation fueled a sense of betrayal and detachment, leading the OP to distance herself emotionally from her parents over the years. As the OP approached marriage, she took a bold step in setting clear boundaries by having her grandpa walk her down the aisle and her grandma take on the traditional mother-of-the-bride role. The decision to invite her parents only as guests or not at all reflected the deep emotional scars and the difficulty in forgiving the years of neglect.
