    I don’t have a baby yet, but when I do I’m sure that the godparents will be married and will probably be close family or friends (around our age).

    My godparents were my dad’s first cousin (who’s my dad’s best friend) and his wife (who’s really close to my mum). We’re all very close.

    My God parents were my mother’s MoH and my father’s Bridesmaid or Best Man. They weren’t related to the family at all. I haven’t talked to my Godfather since I was in grade school, and I haven’t talked to my Godmother since I was in middle school. They moved away, had their own kids, got married, etc. They are strangers to me.

    I don’t know who I’d want for Godparents for our children. I’m inclined to pick our siblings because family is always around but friends might change (just because of my experience with my godparents). On the flip side, Fiance’s godparents are his aunt and uncle that are least involved with his life compared to all his other aunts and uncles.

    My godparents are my mom’s brother and one of her cousins. The godmother didn’t even come to my wedding!
