We are Roman Cathiloc and when a child is around the age of 15 the recieve the sacrament of Confirmation.  My youngest son who will be receiving the sacrament asked his older brother to stand next to him when he receives the blessing.  His older brother was brought up Catholic and has received all of the sacraments also.  My son told me that he will have to ask his wife if it is okay with her before he gives me an answer. If he does not want too all he has to say is no. It will be no big deal.  

Mind you this is just a vent out of frustration.

So what do you want an opinion on?
Whether he should consult his wife?

How odd he'd need his wife's permission to be his younger brother's sponsor, but maybe that's how their relationship works? Idk. I'd be kinda irked about that too.

Oh stop.
Encourage couples to communicate.
The likelihood of him saying no is low.

Maybe they have plans for that day? Maybe she needs help with something? Seems courteous to me to consult with your spouse.

Someone who's unsure shouldn't be his sponsor.

Is 15 a family age or the age from where your from?
My kids are confirmed in 3rd grade at the same time as their 1st communion.

Why would she need to give her ok? Why might it not be ok?

I thought it was odd also.

They do Confirmation for kids in their freshman year of high school.  It is mandated by the archdiocese we are part of.
