Slighty different best man speech question... do I try and break them up?
I'm the best man at a wedding in about a month. The problem is I barely know the girl my buddy is marrying. They've been together about 5yrs, but I've probably had less than 5 conversations with her in that time. I have no stories about them as my buddy doesn't really get to hang out, and I've never really gone out with them.
So, beside the normal, "Toast to the beautiful bride and this guy," I'm coming up blank.
Not that it makes a lot of difference for the toast but she has basically cut ties with his side of the family (for him and her), and won't except anything from them help-wise for the wedding or gifts. I'm good friends with his parents/sister, and see them pretty often, much more than than I see him or he sees his parents, we're all within 5mi of each other. She's worn the pants the entire relationship, and up until lately he's completely gone with it always referring to decisions as "we decided" or "we're going to do this/that" but lately he's starting to say things like "she decided" or "I have no idea what she's doing in regards to wedding stuff."
Any general advice? Honestly, she's not a nice person, and it's really wearing on my buddy, he just looks tired and stressed all the time, terrible really. I tried to talk to him about 2yrs ago about if he really wants to marry this girl, but had no luck. I think he might be a bit more open to hearing it now based on his state of mind but it's hard to say. On a related note, one of his close cousins just a few weeks ago called off her wedding a couple months before it was going to happen, so that might be some sort of in?
Honestly I'm out of my league here, anything constructive would be much appreciated. This might just be more of a venting thread as I'm not expecting "the answer."
