Yikes!  That sucks, but glad you’re discovering this now instead of having a guy in your wedding that will just leave bitter memories.

@elysion:  This! 

We had this happen, too. FI’s brother was asked to step down/suggested their cousin be best man because he’s become a giant douche. I knew he’d be a terrible best man from the beginning because he’s only interested in his wife and their kid and her family. They have “no money,” despite making twice what I do and having fewer expenses. I keep hearing, “Well, kids are expensive…” except that they don’t pay for ANYTHING for their kid. His wife is a SAHM and they get tons of shit from both sets of parents (including cash). They “can’t afford” to buy a couch ffs. Not to mention that he works about 20 hours of overtime a week. I emailed him in March about the bachelor party, and it took him 29 days to send me a one sentence reply that said that they couldn’t afford to do any of the pre-wedding activities (which literally include one family shower and our bachelor/ette party). My beautiful, wonderful MOH took over and we decided to do a joint party. FI FINALLY got ahold of his brother last weekend and they discussed his cousin taking over as best man, and he was like, “Oh…yeah…we might not be able to afford to come up for the wedding.” Except that they rented a car and came up here a few weeks ago because his wife’s BIL got into a car accident (a minor one). wtf.
