When we were planning the wedding of our daughter, we really didn’t think that having it on Father’s Day would cause a conflict. And so far it hasn’t, except for one exception… our secular friends.
We don’t have that many secular friends, but the response from those we did invite has been weak.
What did you think are the primary causes?
a) Father’s day is a big thing in the secular world, despite it being a minor event in Torah Observant society
b) Secular people think that they will feel uncomfortable at a Torah Observant wedding, so they often opt out
c) The Torah Observant lifestyle leaves little room to nurture secular friendships causing them to lose some of their luster
