mommy's boyfriend to godfather?

has anyone been in that situation? i love my BF, we've been together for almost 2 years and i do see us marrying down the line. we dont live together, we dont have a child together. eventually- when the time is right- i'd love to have a child with him.

but i think i want to ask him to be my son's godfather. i love how he interacts with DS, and how much they care for each other. its like a typical father/son relationship.

would that be weird though? cuz it'd be from mommy's boyfriend, to godfather, to maybe stepfather..?

DS is 4.

  • IMHO...yeah. That'd be weird. And I think you feel the same way and are looking for reassurance.

  • Was DS already baptized? If so, he's got a godfather already and that can't be changed.

  • gdiamante - what does baptism have to do with it? My kids are all baptized and none of them have godparents - it's not done in our religion. Please don't make assumptions like that.

  • I wouldn't. What if you two break up? He likely will no longer be around to be your child's godfather.
