Today, I got engaged. When I called my father, who is out of state for a few days, to tell him, his response was, "What'd you do that for?" FML
I agree, your life sucks 28 359
You deserved it 2 890

jessiebear159 tells us more.

Thank you for congratulating me. I agree that my father's response was probably just from shock. He called me not long after we hung up the first time and apologized for reacting that way. I am the youngest of his children and his only daughter, he may just not be ready to let me go yet. He has only been married once, to my mother, and they have been married happily for 22 years. I appreciate the advice that was given and I plan to talk to him more about his concerns when he gets back this coming week.

I guess it depends on how old are you..anyways I'm sure you're old enough to make your own decisions. He could've been more supportive but I wish you the best

Sounds a little like my Dad. Let's hope he's joking!

Aw, it sucks when parents aren't supportive. Congrats nonetheless!

I took this to be the father making a joke.

This sounds like more of a dad joke than dissaproval

Luckily he's not the one marrying him, as long as you're happy!

"For fucks sake dad, for fucks sake"

"Oh you know, for shits and giggles"

At first I read this as "What'd you do for that?" Guess it could've been worse.

As long as you're happy! Cant please them all, not even family.

Sounds like more of a shock response than anything

Just a thought, how successful has your dad been in his previous marriage(s)?

I guess it depends on how old are you..anyways I'm sure you're old enough to make your own decisions. He could've been more supportive but I wish you the best
