There was a news story that popped up this morning:
And it caught my eye because I know her!! Darling Husband and I are very, very close with her sister and her sister’s Fiance… the one who’s wedding she is skipping the pageant for. We went to college with the sister and her Fiance (DH actually almost dated the sister before he dated me haha!) and I met Emily several times when she came to visit. She’s a sweetheart and I am really proud of her for making such a tough decision!

I saw it in The NYTimes this morning and I thought ‘Well, I’d do the same for my sister’ but then I don’t know how hard it is to be Ms Main and then skip the big peagent.

Hey, family will always be way more important and be there for you. Not some silly title. Good for her. 🙂

I just read that AND the comments and I’m SHOCKED at the amount of people that were giving her crap for it! What on earth was with those comments saying that they’ll probably divorce before the year is out and that they should’ve moved the wedding!?
I thought “Good for her!!”

@Misfit: I was livid when I read some of the comments… I had to stop because the sister in question is one of my best friends! They’re an awesome couple and definitely won’t be divorcing in a year…
Oh, and they can’t move their date because of deposits and their job situation. As we bees know… it’s not THAT easy to move dates around!

Good for her! Family is forever! I bet it was a tough decision for her, and I bet her sister probably tried to force her to do the pageant instead!
I was SHOCKED by the comments too. People are so bitter about their own sad lives, sometimes it is just pathetic!

Good for her! I wouldn’t miss my sister’s (or brother’s) wedding for anything. I would look back with regret constantly if I wasn’t there for her at such an important time in her life.
Reading the comments made me sad though; I had to stop. Some people are just downright nasty and care more about money and notoriety than family and relationships.

I think it’s wonderful how selfless she was. She knows what is important in life and made her family her first priority. To give up something you’ve worked so hard for for someone you love must have been one of the hardest and easiest decisions for her to make. From that action alone, I’m sure so many people already thinks that she’s the winner in their eyes. I’m shocked that so many commentors are saying that they wouldn’t do the same thing for their sister.
