Hello, my wife and I were just wondering if we should go to our cousins wedding or not. Its my wifes cousin that is getting married. Our aunt was catholic, received sacraments and was married in the church, then got a divorce and fell away from the church. She now has become an ordained minister of some church through an online payment thing so that she can perform our cousins wedding. Should we go to show our support of our family. Or do we not go to show that we don’t support some random church making someone an ordained minister by paying them. Thank you for your time.
