Do Godparents have to be in a relationship together?

My little sister has two people in mind who do not know each other. I honestly haven't thought about mine, Lol. 3 out of 4 of my mom's daughters are pregnant. :-)

  • I don't think so. My own godparents are actually related, and my kids godparents are not in relationships.

  • My godparents were never in a relationship, they were chosen for their relationship to my parents. My DD's godparents are my brother and my husbands sister. I think once upon a time you would choose a couple because those are the people you were effectively saying you wanted to have raise your child(ren) in your absence but that is no longer the way things work. Godparents are seperate from guardians, and if you have a preference of who your children are raised by, you have to get that legally documented and for that you don't need a couple either.

  • My kids' godparents are not together. We chose my brother and my husband's sister.

  • god parents can be anyone you want them to be, no i dont think they need to be together... it might make things simpler but not nessissary.
