Hi all! I'm new here, and this is my first post. I have a question for all the parents out there about how I should handle this situation. My father is a minister and is supposed to be the officiant at my wedding, however recently we have come across a big problem. My dad, whom I love, has decided that after 36 years married to my mother, and 15 years in the ministry, that he needs to leave everyone and go to Scotland. Right now it's supposed to be a sabbatical for 8 weeks, and he is supposed to come home in Mid-October, however recently he is saying that he isn't sure he will stay in the ministry, or even stay in the town we live in. So, I guess my question is, Do I plan on having him as my officiant, give him until October (when he's supposed to return) to decide, or start trying to find someone else to officiate the wedding? I would appreciate any feedback, because I am at a complete loss.
