Ask E. Jean: My Husband’s Best Friend Didn’t Attend Our Wedding

Life & Love

Dear E. Jean: An awful couple didn’t show up at our wedding. The guy is my husband’s best friend, and they were to be our witnesses. They were the only people invited. Now they’re coming to town, and my husband wants me to join him when he visits. I can’t stand them! What’s the proper etiquette?—Newly Wed

Newly, My Love: Do what Erasmus, the Miss Manners of the Renaissance, advised: Respond to the foul couple’s inexcusable conduct with the charm of your own manners. Go! Your husband will love you for it. (And he will owe you one.)
