  • Like anon said, even though you feel she's making a mistake you should be there to support her

  • Be there for her. Find out for yourself if he's a jerk or not and base your opinion of him on what you see and know for a fact about him...

  • She's 18 and an adult. No one is going to change her mind. You may not support it but you can still support her. if that's what she wants be happy for her.

  • If you aren't sure about him because they are just rumors you should go. Be there or her.

  • My sister is marrying a real tool in October. I can not stand the idea of her choosing such a loser. But I am going...she asked me to be a bridesmaid.
    I am doing what is best for her not him. I am going to support her because if the time comes that she figures out that he is a looser then she will know I will support her through anything.

    Damn... I hope she pulls her head out soon.

  • I was an attendant at my best friend's wedding even though I knew then it was going to end horribly. Which it did. But I love her and support her in her bad decisions as well as her good ones. Go, see the babies, have a good time, and let her know you will always be there for her.
