Our son is getting married next year and he is not asking any of his siblings to be in his wedding. He has been away at college for 3 and 1/2 years, and has made some close friends and I understand his desire to include them since he met his fiance there. But honestly, it hurts. The previous 17 years he was here with us and we have a close family. (Or so I believed) They have dated for 2 and 1/2 years, and she stays with our daughters when she is in town. I am trying to understand this and I want to be happy about the wedding. But when your family is just guests at your own son's wedding it is difficult. We do have a large family so I understand somewhat, but they are including a the ex girlfriend of his best man who just broke up with him. I tried to discuss this with him and he said that it was nothing personal, they just weren't following any traditional wedding plans. Please pray for me and I would appreciate any advice.
