Dear Abby: I am a 37-year-old man who is getting married for the first time. My fiancee, “Holly,” and I went to middle school and high school together, but never really got to know each other until a few years ago. I love her more than words can describe, and I’m happy to be getting ready to spend my life with her.

Growing up, I was socially awkward, partly due to having Asperger’s, which made me a target for bullies. Holly and I are now choosing our wedding party. My sister will be one of her bridesmaids. Holly is an only child, so she doesn’t have a brother who could be one of my groomsmen. She has expressed that she would like her cousin “Gerald” to be one of my groomsmen, so someone from her family is in our wedding party.
