This is my story from my perspective.
My journey with weddings and parental alienation started before I had any understanding or context for the pathology. I got married to a beautiful young lady when I was 21 years old. Her biological dad wasn’t there. Why, you ask? What a great questions and you would think it has a very simple answer, the actual fact is that it is a multi dimensional answer following several generations of family.
At 21 who really cares why someone isn’t at a special event, the brain only fully develops between 25 and 26 years old, so literally I was operating with a partial deck. I knew I was madly in love, my family was there so if my new wife didn’t want her dad there than that was ok.
Little did I know the affects of parental alienation were in full operation. Literally her dad was erased form the event, no one ever spoke about him, there was no empathy displayed and life just moved on. I had an time incredible in the present moment.
I had become complicit in this insidious disease. This video is a fascinating journey tracking my marriage and the mirror like marriage of my 23 year olds daughters wedding in July, except I was the dad erased.
