Making the guest list for a wedding can be incredibly stressful, particularly if you have family members who want to bring their new partners. Weddings are expensive and cutting a guest list down to the closest friends and relatives is difficult when you factor in plus ones and longstanding drama.
In a perfect world, you don't have to hurt feelings or navigate conflict while planning your special day, but that just isn't the reality.
"AITA: Dad is livid because I asked him not to bring new girlfriend to my wedding.
Backstory: My dad is the type to constantly be in and out of new relationships. Lately they've lasted around a year. I find it exhausting to constantly be involved with new women, and have expressed that I don't care what he does, but I'd like to not be involved."
"Last night, my fiance and father had a conversation where we all agreed to place boundaries on the relationship between us and his girlfriend (this one's been about eight months) - namely that we would only have to be around or interact with her when it had to do with my sister (who is about 8 years younger). This is especially important due to our closeness in age with his girlfriend - my fiance has run into people she's gone to high school with that happen to be friends with this woman while we've been visiting my father and it's extremely uncomfortable."
