I don't understand the concept of God parents. It's a religious/Catholic thing, isn't it? DH says that if your child has God parents that they are the legal guardians if something happens to the parents? Is this true? I would have thought that the will would be more legal than a God parent.
I'm my niece's God parent, but she has 3. I thought it was more symbolic and didn't really mean anything. My niece was only baptized and given God parents because my BIL's parents wanted it. And it was in an Anglican church. I think I have a God parent I think on my Dad's side, but I only met her once in my life and I think she's some relative of my grandmother??
DH wants to choose God parents for our child, but we aren't religious. DH was raised Catholic but he's not anymore, he's pagan. I'm an atheist. I'm not sure really why we would need them then?
