I ran across this gossip item, informing me that Eddie Murphy and Tracy Edmonds got married in a New Years’ ceremony sans children. Not just anyone’s kids, but even their own (he has six kids and she has two)! I don’t get it. I don’t understand how anyone could exclude their own children, but I also think it’s stuffy and horrid to exclude children from weddings in general. What is sweeter than some starry eyed little girls gazing adoringly at the glowing bride? How cute are those little flower girls and ring bearers? How can you have a celebration without those neices and nephews, godchildren, neighbors, etc, who are such a happy part of your life? None of your adult friend and relatives will contributes the type of joy and enthusiasm to your wedding that the kids will. When I got married, I invited all my friends to bring their kids along. It wouldn’t have been complete without them!
