So my parents never married and my father can’t stand my mother. I’ve come to realize that we’ve never had a family dinner before, just the three of us. I asked my mom if she would be down to go to a restaurant for my birthday and she said yes. I excitedly asked my dad and he said (and I quote) hell no. He sees no reason to go because he wouldn’t talk to my mother at all. He holds a lot of grudges with her because he’s housed her when she lost her place and she couldn’t follow the rules of no drinking in the house (mom is an angry drunk). While she didn’t drink in the house, she still came home drunk and even ran my dads foot over and rolled his arm up in the window while driving off. Though my dad is completely fine, she still hasn’t apologized for that or any other past fallouts they’ve had. I asked my dad to just cooperate for one day, my birthday. He still said no but came back a half hour later agreeing to go as long as this is the only time. When he said that I told him not to worry about it because what’s the point of going out when he doesn’t want to. He asked why I said no all of a sudden after begging and I said that if he didn’t want to go I won’t keep begging and just cancel the dinner all together. Am I wrong?
