I wouldn’t be upset.  Missing one game may result in less playing time for him, and letting his team down.  He may also miss scouts that often show up at games.  Iwould think it was flattering he was spending the money to go to your wedding when he can’t even stay for the whole thing.  Many people would have skipped the whole thing.

@Ryansgirl:  Yeah, sorry…I’m going to have to go against this too.  I remember in high school a girl on my bball team catching a great deal of grief from our coach for missing a game for her brother’s wedding…a sibling.  And that was just high school. 

The school/athletic department probably has a policy about missing games & practices.  And I would think the wedding of someone who is not an immediate family member is not considered an excused absence.

I agree with PPs, at least he’s trying to be there! And him being there might even be tied to a scholarship agreement or something that you’re unaware of. Just enjoy that he’ll be there for the part of the ceremony and reception, wish him good luck on hi way out, and carry on with enjoying your night.

@Ryansgirl:Maybe try to spend extra time alone with him before, or the next time you see him? Getting upset is understandable. It’s better to vent on the bee than lash out at family!

Plus sides!

I know it sucks that he has to leave early, but sometimes weddings aren’t as big as games to some guys. I think you should be happy that he’ll be there for the ceremony (which is the most important part) and you can celebrate with him later on.

Yeah, that sucks, but college sports is very different than high school. Its hard to understand, but it can mean loss of a scholarship, loss of play time etc. Its serious stuff, even at D3 level.
