I'm not sure this is the right place to post this so if I'm wrong, I'll move it (or miss can move it) My fiance is sober almost 2 years. He lost A LOT of friends making this move. He also recently cut ties with his father, mother, and brothers. None of who are good people. They are not invited to the wedding. This leaves him with no one to stand up with him ( he has Navy friends who he hasn't seen in 10 years except on Facebook and know him as a partier). And no mother for the mother/son dance. I've ordered to not do a father daughter dance but he thinks it's important since my dad and I are,working on out or relationship (long story). He is dragging his feet on asking his old friends because he "didn't do anything with his life" after he left the Navy. He's 90% disabled. I can live without certain traditions but I want my 2 best friends standing next to me when I marry this amazing man. I just don't want him to feel like a loser (his words) l. This is breaking my heart that he feels this low.
