- Wedding: August 2013
So My FI is divorced. I’ve never been married. It’s fine, it was a long time ago they were both young, they had no children and the marriage lasted all of two years.
However, while looking over the ceremony that his wonderful aunt wrote up and who will also be officiating for us I couldn’t help but notice the presentation part where after we kiss she announces, “It is my pleasure to introduce to you for the ‘very first time’ Mr. & Mrs. so and so”.
It bothers me! I don’t want to be nit-picky and I’m sure it’s one of those things that no one will notice or care about if they do. I just can’t get it out of my head, if it were anyone other than his aunt I would simply ask them to omit the ‘first time’ part, but because it’s his aunt I’m afraid she’ll be hurt by it. As if I where purposely pointing out that he had a failed marriage before ours and is no longer worthy of such a distinction with me.
That’s really not the case at all; I guess I just don’t want to act like his first marriage never happened, because it did and that okay.
Am I being ridiculous? Do I leave it and get over it or bite the bullet and ask her to change it?
