This 19-year-old woman has always been close to her older brother, Mark, 25. They’ve always been best friends; she considers him her favorite sibling. A while ago, Mark proposed to his now-fiancée, Emma, 23.

Throughout the time she’s known Emma, they’ve always gotten along well. Whenever Emma came by the house, they would chat and were always cordial with one another.

After Mark and Emma announced their engagement, Emma didn’t ask her to be a bridesmaid. She wasn’t upset about this because she knew that if the roles were reversed, she wouldn’t have asked Emma to be a bridesmaid at her wedding.

“The problem started when my brother asked me to be one of his ‘groomswomen.’ Emma was totally against this, arguing it was untraditional and I’d stick out,” she said.

However, Mark stood by his decision because she was a huge part of his life and one of the people closest to him, so he wanted her to have a role at his wedding.

In addition, Mark hoped for her to make a speech, like the maid of honor and best man do for the bride and groom.

Emma was furious about this idea, claiming that a speech from her and the maid of honor would be dull for the guests, who would think their dinner was too long.

But Mark doubled down again, arguing that if Emma could have her maid of honor speak, someone close to him should also be able to make a speech in support of him. Finally, Emma gave up trying to change Mark’s mind, but she occasionally whined about it.

On Mark and Emma’s wedding day, she wore a black, high-cut dress to better blend in with the groomsmen. She stood on her brother’s side of the altar during the ceremony.
