Tx to all for your thoughtful responses. You’re right…Need to be careful to consider my prospective fiance’s feelings first and make sure he’d be OK w/me asking my dad-in-law to escort me…wouldn’t want action to connote "passing" of me from beloved deceased husband to beloved new husband. If my prospective FI isn’t OK with this (and I’ll be very sensitive), I will ask my brother-in-law. I know these situations can be delicate. Another question didn’t think of before…Do you think my father-in-law would be comfortable being asked to do this? Would he feel glad to be included, or might it be painful for him?
Re: my own father, he gave me away the first time, which was lovely, but I’d like to do something different in a different phase of life. Tx again for good counsel….Good luck with everything, and I’ll post again if my hoped-for proposal actually comes!
