My husband and I were married on August 13 and it was the perfect day. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect start to a marriage. However, three weeks before my wedding and the day before my bachelorette party, my mom found out my dad was cheating on her and kicked him out. This obviously caused a lot of heartache and pain within my family and with myself. I still had my dad walk me down the aisle and had my father/daughter dance with him even though I was still very angry but I knew he was my dad and I didn't want to look back on my wedding day and regret not having him there.
After the wedding and while I was on my honeymoon, he asked my mom to try to give him another chance. She agreed but warned him that she was deeply hurt and the love she had for him was gone. After a month of trying, weekend trips, dinners, talks, the works, she told him that she was done and that the love she had for him faded away the day she found out of his infidelity. If they were to split up, I would be ok with it. All I want is for them to be happy and if that means they are happier apart, then that's what it has to be.
My problem is both parents have been talking to me about the other. It is really hard for me to be put in the middle and to be supportive for both of them. My dad made a huge mistake and has to unfortunately suffer the consequences. I've been there for my mom through this entire situation, but now I feel like she's holding a grudge against me since I haven't seen her in a few weeks due to work schedules, previously made weekend plans, and stupid colds (but I talk to her for a minimum of an hour on a daily basis). It has just become very hard for me and I'm at a loss of what to do. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!
PS- Sorry for the rant lol
