Best friend and I have known each other since we were eight years old. She is getting married in and she wants everyone to be happy for her and act excited.
It's a train wreck waiting to happen.
I can't be happy for her because she is marrying a jerk! He's a true cheater! The more I tell my best friend about his behavior, she professes her love for him even more.
They have been together for a year and just got engaged.
His behavior is getting more and more ridiculous and it's putting a strain on the relationship with my best friend. We are like sisters, and I don't know what to do anymore.
While she is planning this wedding, I don't know if I will be there, let alone as her matron of honor. She says she wants the same relationship with a husband that I have, and that's what I want for her too.
I don't want her to be more miserable that she already is. Am I wrong if I tell her I don't want to hear anything else about this madness?
I know she wants a man, but why would you lose a relationship with a great friend just to protect a man who has never been there for you?

Sweetie, as her Best friend And Potential matron of honor, all you can do at this point in time, is be beside her, for better or for worse. Although you have tried to put a bouquet up her butt to the fact that this grimy ass groom is cause for a "Prenup," and causing even more "war brides" between you and your childhood chum, there's "sickness and in health" issues going on that is making This even more a train wreck. She's so liquored up on going through with this, that No matter what confetti you throw in her face, she will Still be walking down the aisle with new shoes, Not cold feet.
The way I'm seeing this less than perfect picture, the more you say "Please don't," the More she will be crying "I Do," and in turn, she will be running into his waiting low life arms.
It's probably true that she wants a man, but to tell her to leave This Jerk at the alter, doesn't look as though will happen in this fairy tale lifetime.
All you can do now, is Continue being her Best friend And Her wedding planner, and just give her this sisterly "now you may kiss the bride," peck, to let her know you will always there for her, till death do you both part. You might want to remind her as well, should she realize you Were right about all the madness, that you were Happy to have least been with her on her special day.
However, even if this honeymoon is over before it begins, at least you can live with a "Good china" conscience, that you did all you could do to get her on the next train out...xx0
