Divorce isn’t easy to handle. Not only is it difficult for the adults involved, it’s especially taxing on the children. It’s a messy situation that often does not end peacefully.
When one Dad married a younger woman, he thought it would be a great idea to bring his new wife to his daughter’s wedding. This seems perfectly normally in theory… but there’s just one problem.
The new wife wanted to make a statement to the mother-of-the-bride. That was the wrong move, and things were about to get real ugly…
With Jennifer’s wedding day getting closer, nothing could make the excited bride lose momentum. Not even her parents’ divorce.
Jennifer’s mom had found the perfect dress and would look like a beautiful mother-of-the-bride on her daughter’s big day.
But just one week later, Jennifer discovered that her father’s 25-year-old wife had bought the exact same dress as her mom…
So she asked her stepmom to return it but the young wife refused.
“No way! I look amazing in this dress, and I’m wearing it,” she replied.
Jennifer broke the bad news to her mother but the matron took it surprisingly well.
“Don’t worry, darling. I’ll just find a new dress. It’s your special day and this won’t get in the way.”
Just a few days later, they went shopping and found another beautiful dress.
When they got home, Jennifer asked her mom, “When will you return the other dress? You don’t really have another reason to wear it anytime soon.”
“Of course I do!,” her mom replied. “I’m going to wear it for the rehearsal dinner the night before your wedding.”
