Good evening. I am feeling quite torn on this issue so here it goes. I recently became engaged to the love of my life! We decided to wait at least two years before tying the knot because we both want to finish college, plus it gives me time to plan. I an very excited and can't wait to start planning! However, I don't know how I am going to go about choosing my Maid of Honor. I have one very close friend who I have been friends with since we were in preschool, but when she got married a few years ago, we got into an argument before her big day and I ended up not going to her wedding because she didn't like the fact that I couldn't afford the cost of being in her wedding at the time. We reconciled when she became pregnant and today we are good friends. I wouldn't call her my best friend, but she's the closest I have to that. Now is where it gets interesting. I became very close with my ex-boyfriend's Aunt when we were dating. We would do things together all the time and remained good friends after her nephew and I broke up. We've gone shopping together, she introduced me to new guys, she even helped me get hired at the place she works at where I worked as my last job. She's always been very supportive of me and has helped me out in numerous instances. All in all, she's one of my closest friends and has proven her friendship way more than my other friend. I am thinking of asking her to be my Maid of Honor but I am also worried of running into my ex and causing awkward situations. I have not told my fiance, but I know he will be a little hesitant at my idea. I know this because I also somewhat remained friends with my ex's mom. When I asked my fiance what he thought about me going out to lunch with her, he told me it was my decision but was still hesitant. My ex was very emotionally abusive and was beginning to get physically violent when we broke up. My fiance knows this and I know that is why he feels indifferent. I don't want to disrespect him or give him reason to worry, but this woman really is the person I picture being my Maid of Honor. I have NO feelings for my ex anymore so that isn't a worry of mine. Am I just being REALLY stupid???
