OP’s parents divorced when they were seven, mainly because their dad had an affair. The divorce happened because their parents were pressured into marriage by their own parents and never had a strong connection. Their mom later remarried to Owen, who was indifferent to OP. As a result, OP preferred their dad’s home, where they had a stepmom, Emma, who treated them well.
Now, OP is getting married to Kate, who has a good relationship with Emma but a more distant one with their mom. When Kate asked their mom to wear yellow for the wedding, things took a bad turn. Their mom reacted negatively, saying it wasn’t fair and making some unreasonable comments. OP pointed out that their mom wasn’t a single mom, given her marriage to Owen. This escalated into a heated argument, with Owen getting involved. OP’s mom called Kate names and refused to wear yellow, leading to a major disagreement. It’s clear that OP’s preference for their dad and Emma has caused ongoing tension, but the argument over the wedding dress has escalated the situation.
