Sorry about your situation. I agree that the GM’s wife is being ridiculous.

@MrsC2014:  Yikes!  I think it’s rude and ridiculous to have asked you that, but I really feel bad for that GM!  She put him in an awkward position, and sounds like there are some serious issues (or a strange dynamic) going on between the two of them.

@MrsC2014:  Geez! I feel sorry for that Groomsmen. He has to deal with that type of behavior from his wife.

@MrsC2014:  The “best man” (quotes necessary here. He was the biggest prob of the entire wedding) started divorce proceedings against his wife of 20 years (that Darling Husband has known that whole time, and really likes) about 8 weeks before our wedding.
He brought his new trophy girlfriend to our rehearsal, without clearing it with us. He then got his boxers in a twist when I said I wasn’t adding any more chairs to the head table (… we weren’t sure that HE was even going to show up to the wedding, TBH!)
The next day, this youngin’ (girlfriend) sat at a guest table and best man was drunk as heck the entire day. Not our alcohol, though. He brought a case of beer in his truck and had half of it down before our ceremony began.

So, yes, I believe people CAN be that rude. Sigh.

Oookay. Wow. That would be like my best friend’s boyfriend being jealous of my 13 year old brother walking her down the aisle. What a ridiculous situation. High five to you for nipping it in the bud.

@MrsC2014:   Ok- here is a weird, random thought: Perhaps they actually couldn’t afford the cost of him being a Groomsmen but were way too embarrassed so say so, instead, they concocted this bizarre plan, hoping you would suggest that he step down?

Just a thought.


Thanks for the update!

OP, you did a great job handling this!  You should probably pop a bag of popcorn for whenever you are around this couple…because you never know when she might bring out that fabulous crazy!

I had a similiar situation as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding many years ago.  The bridal party and a small group of family, and significant others of the bridal party were in attendance of the rehearsal.  Things were going smoothly until I was paired with a groomsman and was walking down the aisle, and a family member remarked at what a lovely pair we made.  Cue the groomsman’s fiance whipped into a jealous frenzy and letting everyone know loudly, SHE BETTER NOT GET USED TO THIS!  HE IS MY MAN, WE ARE GOING TO WALK DOWN THE AISLE IN X MONTHS etc. She followed it up with general stink-eye and eyerolling in my direction.  Sigh, I was never close to interested to this groomsman, but thanks crazy lady.  I’m sure their marriage is deeply based on trust and respect, LOL.
