I’m 27 years old marrying my best friend FINALLY!! We’ve been together for about 3 and a half years and engaged about a year and a half. I have 2 kids of my own 2 step sons and one son together with FH. We are definitely what you call a big mixed family, but I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.

Happily married 🎉

I need to vent, but at the same time I need advice. My dad and I have never been close. He’s always been in and out of my life and more out than in. Honestly, I have a lot of resentment towards him....
