Stand Up For A Person At A Wedding

I have been asked to "stand up" for my father at his wedding. I don't know if "stand up" is like a matron of honor/best man.

I don't support this marriage because I don't know the woman at all. He met her in Ca (we live in Mo). He met her while on vacation (he was there less than a week) and within a month they were engaged and are to be married in a couple weeks.

He just got divorced in June and I feel like he is rushing into this. It would be different if they weren't in such a rush and I knew her. Does "stand up" mean I am supporting the marriage?

Our Thoughts

It sounds like this is a very emotional time and difficult situation for you to deal with. Yes, standing up for someone at their wedding means that you are supporting that person and the marriage itself.

While it may be difficult, it is up to you as to how your relationship with him will proceed from this point on. Without knowing all of the details it is hard to say, but not standing up for him may seriously strain your future relationship with him.

Try to think about the situation with a clear head, and make the best decision you can. This is a tough situation, and only you know what the best way to handle it is.

To Your Wedding!
