He actually is my moms exboyfriend. But he has been in my life for over 20 years! He’s been there for me whenever I needed him. I don’t know how to include him in my big day. I know I can have a father/daughter dance and then a stepfather/daughter dance, but does anyone have any suggestions on anything else? Thank you

My stepdad and I are doing a dance. You could also make him a reader during your ceremony. Is he walking you down the aisle? If not then you could have him usher your mom and grandparents to their seats. I think making him a reader is a very sentimental thing though.

Hi. I have a situation with parents, too. My mother and father divorced when I was still a baby (I’m 49 now). My father remarried soon after and was married to “Jane” until the end of his life. My mother and father both died about 15 years ago. I didn’t meet my father until I was 30 and then was in touch with him for a couple years before his death. I love my stepmom Jane and she and I got close when my mom and her husband (my father) died. Jane is a wonderful lady who keeps telling me God wants us to be married (not living together). When we get engaged and plan our wedding, I want to give Jane a place in the ceremony. I will either have her light the taper candle for my part of the Unity candle ceremony (and have bf’s mom light his) or have her do a reading.
Bless you for your capacity to love this man who filled an important role in your life. My grandfather was my Daddy, no one else ever took his place.
