Hey guys, so FI and I were talking last night and he said "do you think I should have my dad as a groomsman since I was his best man in his 2nd wedding". This was the first he had brought up this idea, we had talked before that his two good guy friends would probably be in it (we haven't decided on having 1 or 2 people per side) and I figured his dad and stepmom would be the usual FOG/MOG (his mom died years ago).
I think he feels obligated since his reasoning was that he was in his dad's and now his dad needs to be in his, although I doubt his dad has an expectation of being a GM. In my mind his dad will already have a special role as FOG. Plus he is much closer to his friends than his dad since his dad is across the country and they talk once a week or every couple weeks but not a super close relationship, I would see it more if he had a very close relationship with his dad.
I'm not opposed to it, because at the end of the day he can have whoever he wants it just seems a little odd to me. Just curious if anyone else has had a parent in the bridal party (along with other attendants of a similar age to the couple).
