Hi all. So I have recently been put into a terrible situation and just looking for some opinions about a possible solution. I have been engaged for 2 years this month and have been planning a wedding for just as long. My fiance is in the process of trying to get divorced but things are taking forever because we don't know where his ex is anymore. A month ago we got news that my uncle, who raised me, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given only a few months to live. It would break my heart if he was not there for my wedding and I don't even think that I would want to do it after he is gone. I'm thinking about just having a commitment ceremony to take the place of the wedding. This way my uncle can still be involved in the "wedding" and that would just take the place of the real wedding. Then when the divorce is finally finalized we would just go to the courthouse ourselves and make it legal. I have read other forums that say that it is unacceptable and rude to invite people to a "wedding that isn't a real wedding", but it's looking like the only option I have at this point. Advice? Ideas? Any would be appreciated.
