    Of course you can. But if these family members were truly determined and had the resources they could fight it. If you don't think they would then it doesn't matter so much.

    You really do need to speak to your friends though.

    It's a big decision. The good friends we had decided on and asked declined so we went with our second choice being dh's sister. The rest of the family were advised of our wishes and it's in our will.

    It's the family I'm worried about. Even if friends say no, it won't affect the relationship. It's a massive decision to say yes, and I'm not going to be offended if they don't feel they can. But I think DH's family will get upset. Mine may too even though they're not actually involved I. Our lives. But we will talk to friends first as if they say no, then there's no point upsetting anyone just yet, and we'll go back to the drawing board.

    I just know it will be a difficult conversation. And I don't really know how we should broach it.
