Umm what’s the big deal? Go to the wedding, and have yours 2 years later who cares about the March 17th 20– date.

I think you are overreacting. While yes, you will be upset that he isn’t there, but why upset your friend on her wedding day?? Be happy for them, and know that you will have your day.  There are so many worse situations to be in.

Just curious, how long is he in jail for a DUI? Was it his first?

Its just a date and yours will be two years later. There is no competition there. I dont see what the big deal is.

i agree with vmec. given they are two years apart, i think its a non-issue.  if it will make you feel better, since she is getting married first, she will have to spend an anniversay at your wedding while you will never miss celebrating one.

@angregory:No need to be upset, I’m not sure why you are. It’s 2 years before your wedding. And honey, you are going to share your anniversary with EVERYONE and their mothers!

I actually share my anniversary with a friend of mine, although she was married a year earlier. We wanted a Saturday in May and our date happened to fall on Memorial Day weekend, which we wanted. Before we made any decisions I asked my friend if she minded and she didn’t care in the least. So now we’re anniversary buddies!

I’d just view it as something else you share with your best friend. Now you’ll never remember her anniversary!

@angregory: that is so ridiculous! He shouldn’t have to spend more than one night in jail. Not even prison. I would def. appeal asap!

@angregory:  8 years?!  that’s absurd.  My friend is a criminal attorney and her first time DUIers get a slap on the wrist, community service and AA meetings.  Get yourself another attorney immediately and appeal!
