To each thy own. Brad for whatever reason stated issues related to his father. Not for anything, but it seems his twin and other brother were able to move past this issue. Some remarks were made in the media about Brad's father commenting about said issues and being somewhat surprised about being the reason for Brad's commit phobia.
Could be exaggerated some or maybe Brad has other issues besides his father.
What does anyone make of the comment that Chantal's dad made to Brad about if you and Chantal have the opportunity to get married, I give you my blessing. Then in PI or VO, Mike says Brad and Chantal could get married tomorrow and I would give it my full blessing. Very strange wording.
Fleiss puts everything in for a reason.
Most of the time don't the parents say something like I would love to see them engaged or something like that?
As far as we have seen, Brad did not meet Emily's father.
