It’s part of your heritage! I think it’d be awesome to do.

I dont see it being a problem the reason for jumping the broom goes back to slavery days when blacks could not marry and this was the only thing that signified the marriage. Your FI is marrying a Black American and your traditions should be respected. You dont know how his family feels but I believe expressing what it means would give them a clear understanding.

 

I hope this helps…Congrats on your upcoming wedding…

@Jill129:  If it’s important to you, do it!  My husband is hindu, so we had a full hindu wedding (along with an american ceremony).  I’m not hindu, but I still loved doing the ceremony for him and his family, since it’s what they do for a wedding.

@Jill129:  Jump it!

 

My mother is black, my father is white, and so is white. I won’t be jumping the broom, but not being a ‘black enough couple’ has nothing to do with it. 😉
