Never thought I'd be in this boat -- devastated!

You are so not being selfish! Your father is being selfish and boycotting your wedding will be something he regrets if he goes through with it. If you want your husband's name then take it! It is nobody's decision but yours...not even your husband's...lol
It stinks that dad would even put this burden on you. Cultural traditions are sticky situations but it is 2007....time for a new tradition if that's what you want. Good luck!!

Anyhoo, Paul and I are going to let it go and move on with our own lives. We believe we have tried everything we could. Paul thinks that subconsciously I am their favorite daughter and only one truly carrying my dad's name so they're jealous of him and love me deep down too much to let me go, hence all the drama. I don't know, any of you who's good at psychology tell me what you think. We will pray to god for the miracle to happen that one day they'll eventually come around...

On a side note, I have to admit that this whole situation is so foreign to me. FI's parents are pretty traditional and threw a fit when FBIL's wife said she wanted to keep her maiden name. I had no idea the tradition goes both ways!
