An Opponent of Marriage Equality and His Gay Nephew's Wedding
I’m opposed to gay marriage. What should I do about my gay nephew’s invitation to attend his wedding?
If you think your nephew is aware of your views, then by inviting you to his wedding, it’s pretty clear he feels close to you nonetheless. I often say that family trumps politics, so I’d hope you could be present for this important event in his life without having to wave the flag against gay marriage. However, if you don’t feel you can keep your mouth shut, or think that you’d be a hypocrite, definitely decline the invitation.
