That’s ridiculous, and says something bad about their marriage.  To be extremely jealous of walking another woman for 10 seconds to her spot in the ceremony is not exactly a sign of a strong marriage… even more so that it is a 16 year old!!

@MrsC2014:  Wow! How extra weird of her. I can’t even imagine being that insecure. Her poor husband for having to even ask that of you lol

@mgbser:  Their marriage could be just fine- now. But I would bet that her insecurity will take its’ toll on the marriage eventually. He is likely to interpret her actions as not trusting him.

This is pretty funny…even though it’s ridiculous for her to be uncomfortable at all, I’m going to try and give her the benefit of the doubt that she didn’t put him up to asking. Groomsmen just asked randomly, being a guy and thinking this would solve everything.

@MrsC2014:  If she’s not American, then I can understand that things can be totally different. I would actually probably assume that it’s COMPLETELY different for weddings there. She probably has no concept of what it means to the bride and groom. Free pass, in my book.

@MrsC2014:  dadgone she has some serious trust issues. I highly doubt the Groomsmen will stick his dong in the Bridesmaid or Best Man while he’s walking her down the aisle.

 

She needs a massive chill pill.

@MrsC2014:  I feel bad for the poor Groomsmen. I guarantee you his wife made him ask and it really put him in a bad position. She sounds a little looney..

@MrsC2014:  She is jealous that he’ll be walking beside a 16 year old?? I can’t even believe he had the nerve to ask for her to be in the bridal party, that is just flat out embarrassing. Who asks to be in a bridal party?!?! especially of a person they don’t even know! I’m shocked by this. Sorry you’re dealing with that kind of ridiculous behaviour.

I was the best man’s date when the wedding party sat at a head table (sans dates) and then danced together.  I was very glad to know people so I wasn’t sitting with strangers.  Maybe she thought it would be like that too, and that made her uncomfortable?  Not that that excuses wanting the honor of being a Bridesmaid or Best Man.  Maybe if she knew it was just a matter of walking down the aisle with a 16 year old, and nothing else, she wouldn’t be concerned.
