A woman recently asked for some advice because she felt awkward having her fiance’s ex-lover as their best man, and it was causing problems. Here’s what happened.

A woman and her boyfriend got engaged, and although they didn’t have a large circle of friends, everyone was very happy for them, and they were excited about the future.

Among that small circle of friends was the woman’s fiance’s best friend, a 27-year-old man, who was just as excited as they were about the upcoming wedding.

The best friend was so excited that he started making his own plans, even assuming he’d be the best man and saying he’d have to make room in his schedule.

Although it was nothing more than a throwaway comment, the woman couldn’t get past what he’d said. She said, “This hasn’t really left my mind since.”

The reason the woman was a little disconcerted was that her fiance and his best friend had experimented sexually with one another when they were in high school.

The pair had never actually had what could be termed a relationship, but they had definitely had sex.

The woman’s fiance had told her about this so that everything was out in the open; he wanted her to know about his past and the fact that he was bisexual. But it had all happened so long ago, well before they met, that it wasn’t a problem. Or so he thought.

They Got Along Well

The woman said, “I’m not jealous of their relationship, and I normally get along fine with his best friend.”

Yet despite their good relationship, the woman didn’t like the idea that her fiance’s best man would be someone he’d had sex with in the past, and the fact that he was a man made it even more awkward.

The fiance had other ideas. He definitely wanted his best friend to be his best man because they’d helped one another through some very difficult times, and he wanted him to share his big day.

Was She Wrong?

Was the woman wrong to feel awkward about her husband’s ex-lover being his best man, or should she just accept that they’re friends and let him have his choice?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “He chose you. If he wanted to choose his friend romantically, he clearly could have. Deciding that it bothers you now is a weirdo move.”

Another commented, “You’re okay with them being best friends but not having him stand for your fiancé at your wedding? Does this sound rational to you?”
