Shouldn't Parents Get a Thank You Note?
I'm wondering why I'm even asking this, but times have changed and maybe I expect too much. My stepdaughter got married last summer. We paid for about 1/4 of her wedding costs. And then I decided I still wanted to get a gift so I purchased her whole set of china (since no one had purchased any of it yet). When we gave it to her, she just looked at it and said oh I was wondering who bought that off my registry and walked away. Personally I think she was expecting more. So I figured some time after the wedding we'd get a thank you card for our contribution to her wedding costs and the china. Never got anything. Am I expecting too much? I mean even a verbal thank you would have been nice. Her dad wasn't thanked either. Should we say something to her? It makes me not want to doing anything for her going forward and I hate that feeling.
