I don't know where to post this so I thought I'd start here...
I didn't know where to post this, so I thought I would ask you guys.
My fiance just got asked to be a god parent to one of his closest friends son. The god mother is the sister of the wife of the baby. (the baby's aunt)
I told my fiance that I thought it was reasonable for them to ask the sister to be the godmother because we are not married. He said I was wrong and that even if we were married they still would have asked the sister.
SO - my question is, is it rude to only ask one person in a married couple to be a god parent? I think it singles you out and what is the left out spouse supposed to do?
I told him that based on our conversations with his close friends, they tell their kids, "say goodbye to Uncle so and so", and when saying goodbyes to me it's always, "say goodbye to (they use my first name)". It's never "aunt ___".
We have been dating for almost 4 years and have a child together ourselves, so it's not like we are strangers, or I don't know them.
Yes - I'll admit, I am a little miffed because I feel left out. HOWEVER - I can acknowledge that since we aren't married how they would not ask me. What do you guys think?
