Woman Doesn't Want Her Husband to Walk His Sister Down The Aisle, Asks If She's Wrong | "It Feels a Bit Odd"

The bride, i.e. her sister-in-law, doesn't share a healthy relationship with her father, so she wanted her brother to walk her down the aisle instead.

Sibling relationships are often one of the closest bonds one forms in their life. You want them to be around on all your important days, especially your wedding day. Siblings do take over wedding duties and outdo to make their siblings' day special. But is it okay for a brother to walk her sister down the aisle, despite the father being alive? One woman doesn't find that to be a reasonable arrangement and asked the Reddit community on a post if she was wrong to not feel too cheerful about the idea.

Reddit user u/Throra334356 explained the family equations in her post. "My husband, Mike (37) is the eldest in his family. He's pretty close with his sister Beth, (28) and they spend almost all week together." Beth doesn't share the most loving relationship with her father. They had a falling out years before, after Beth's father damaged her car. They weren't in contact with each other for years until recently. Now that Beth's getting married, he's going to attend the celebration. But, Beth would rather have her brother Mark walk her down the aisle. "From what I understand, she and her dad are slowly getting reconciled, but she made it clear she wants him to take no part in the wedding." When the Reddit user got to know about Beth's wish, she found it rather odd. "I have to say that I was taken aback and it felt a bit odd for me because, her dad is alive, they're on speaking terms again, and he's gonna be there at the wedding so the logical thing to do is have him walk her down the aisle. This role isn't for her older brother but for her father. Not to mention how Father-in-law will feel about it."
