My son, Zack, met and married a wonderful girl, Kaysha, who had a daughter, Jenna, then four. ( Oh, my…she just turned 13 this year and now they have two children of their own, Addison and Molly…how time flies!)
When Zack and Kaysha got engaged, Jenna would say, “we’re getting married”. After Zack and Kaysha exchanged vows and the rings, Zack bent down to Jenna, who was standing next to her mom, and put a ring on Jenna’s finger too! Jenna was so excited and surprised. It was very touching to watch as Jenna was included in this very special way. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the reception hall…it was a surprise for everyone….including me!
Remember, when you are getting married and there are children, to include them in some kind of way. This is a special and big day for you, as well as for them.
