It takes a lot more than simply having a child to be a parent. Some kids are in such horrible situations, the best thing that can happen to them is to be able to get away from their abusive mother and father. That was the situation with a Reddit user who posted this a few months before her wedding:
“So my narcissistic parents abused me for 16 years before I ran away from home. Now they’re trying to bully their way (via family, they haven’t bothered to speak to me personally) into getting an invitation to my wedding. There was really only one way to respond.”
If that doesn’t get the point across that her parents aren’t welcomed, then not much else is going to make a difference. She even used the good card stock on it. That stuff isn’t cheap!
