I have a concern i guess or just want to vent. My husband and I - as most of you know - we're married just a little under 2 months and you all know at that point i was still "active" in the org. We had a few issues with our bridal party - namely the groom - cuz according to them he wasnt a good example and not in good status because they hadn't seen him at the meetings or in service for like 2 months. This was a concern for me due to the fact that i wanted (for my family and friends) the wedding at the hall. He swore to me he would go just to make it through the last 3 months we had left before the wedding. Of course something always came up and he never went and I was a little upset because he could not go to a meeting "for me" and "for our wedding".
Anyway that's all over - we are married now but here is the funny part. And what i want your comments if any. His brother is getting married in a few months and they are both active. My husband was supposed to be the best man - it's his only brother. Well he found out today that he was not "approved" to be in his bridal party. I didnt expect any different we havent been to a meeting since we got married.
So I asked him if he was ok and he said he was a little upset. I don't get this. Is he upset because he wanted to be a part of his brother's wedding because honestly he doesn't want anything to do with the witnesses so why get upset if you haven't been to a meeting and you know how the rules are. I'm trying to be understanding and supportive - seeing as we have other marital issues right now - but my question is...why get upset if this is the life that you want? I am truly sorry it's his brother and he cannot be a part of it. But honestly you can't expect any different.
I'm sorry I guess i just needed to vent.
