    Why is it ok to have adult only functions, and not able bodied only functions?

    FL - There are many reasons that people exclude children, in our family there a so many cousins and they have so many kids people often have to exclude the kids (25 cousins plus most have partners and 52 kids, that is a lot of bodies. The kids have been known to outnumber the adults at events) but in this case he is not a child but a young man with a disability, the groom wanted him there and it seems the reason he is not included is because he has severe autism. So they are excluding 1 person, not even a whole group of people.
    Why do adults automatically get to go? Why not say- 2 representatives from each family or something.

    I'm wondering how important it is for her to have a church service? Is it because she wanted the photos to be "traditional churchy" type, or because she actually is religious?

    There could be some really interesting readings chosen to be read at the service - or perhaps someone could phone the priest and ask him to make special mention of 'inclusion of family' in the sermon (although dragging a good priest into a petty arguement is going to far obviously).

    Just incredible. Heaven help all the family if she has a child with special needs.

    Because it's discriminatory.
    Are we heading into discrimination against children territory?

    But that's not what she's doing. EVERY OTHER COUSIN is invited except this one. Choosing not to have children there is one thing and if they'd chosen not to have children there than maybe I could understand why they also didn't want the cousin there MAYBE.. but that's not the case. A young child is just as likely to disrupt the service as this young man and from the sounds of things he's only going to perhaps make a few noises and rock back and forth.

    I see your point fearless leader but it seems you're going off on a tangent and not a very constructive one. Let's try and be supportive and constructive here, this is a horrible situation for this lady so let's keep the chat nice

    That is just about one of the most DISGUSTING things I have ever heard.

    There is no way on earth I would attend, and I would also pen a letter outlining exactly why to the cow of a bridezilla.

    LOL she's talking about her neighbour, not her own kid, so hardly her 'situation' I don't think she needs a support group.
