Father refused to walk his daughter down the aisle

A man named Mark took to Reddit to ask if he was in the wrong for refusing to walk his daughter down the aisle on her special day.

After years of believing Alice was his daughter, Mark discovered that his wife, Clare, cheated on him 18 years ago and that her then-lover, James, was Alice’s biological father. This crushed Mark’s life into millions of pieces.

Mark divorced his wife because he couldn’t deal with the prospect of her infidelity. This revelation, however, did not change his emotions for Alice. She was still his daughter and the person he cherished the most. His entire existence was centered around her pleasure and well-being.

Unfortunately, after learning the truth about her biological father, Alice began to despise Mark for no reason. She somehow blamed him for not telling her the truth sooner, even though he was unaware of it until then.

Suddenly, Alice wanted to meet her biological father and wanted him to be part of her life, leaving Mark behind.

When she decided to shut Mark out of her life, she never considered all the years of love and attention he had given her as a parent. Mark was devastated. He attempted to call Alice several times, but she never answered the phone, and when she did, she told him to keep away from her because she was now living with her mother and true father.

One day, Mark got a call from the college Alice attended.

They were worried about her academic progress. Mark was determined to try to get into contact with his daughter again to learn why she was falling behind and offer her some help.

“Don’t call me again or I’ll report you to the cops!” she told him, ready to hang up on him.

“Alice, please wait. I swear I won’t call you again, but this time it’s not about me. It has to do with your academics,” Mark said.

“Oh my god! Are you sick of acting like a daddy? How long can you act like that, seriously?” she answered.

“But honey, I was worried about you,” Mark told her.

“Mark, that’s enough!” was Alice’s reply. “If you do this again, or even look for me, you know what the next step will be!”

Did she call him by name? When did he stop being her father? Mark was saddened and decided never to call Alice again, even though his heart ached and he loved her more than anything.

Some years passed by, and out of the blue, Mark received a text message from Alice.

He began shaking and felt short of breath. He had been dreaming about this moment for years. He honestly felt she wrote him to apologize, and he was ready to overlook everything and welcome her back into his life. Unfortunately, that wasn’t what Alice desired.

“Hi Dad, this is Alice,” she started her text. “I am about to get married soon and I want you to walk me down the aisle.

“I understand our relationship hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but I need your help. Adam, my fiancé, has been my only support system since my father passed away two years ago.”

Alice stated that she required Mark to be present on her wedding day since her future mother-in-law had informed her so. The mother-in-law came from a close-knit family, and she wanted her son to marry someone who valued tradition and family values; otherwise, she would not have approved of the wedding.

So, in simple words, Alice wasn’t the one who wanted Mark there, she just wanted him to save her relationship and her big day.

After that, she asked that Mark forget everything that had happened between them years prior because he was to fault for their failed relationship. Mark couldn’t believe that, after all these years, Alice was still clueless that what occurred after he and her mother separated was entirely her responsibility. She cared entirely about her wedding.

After some thought, Mark refused to lead Alice down the aisle. Some of his friends thought he had done something illegal, but he understood he wasn’t invited to that wedding; it was only a means for Alice to display a happy family in front of her mother-in-law.

What do you think about this situation? Do you believe Mark is in the wrong for not walking his daughter down the aisle?
