Do you have one what and  has their role been in your life??
 
 
there is gonna be a christening of a family member and they wondering if god parents are really needed?? and what if if you choose god parents that are not a couple?
 
most of the god prents I see around don't even spend time with the  child sometime even years is it just for show during the christening ceremony?

i think its nice to have them, i wouldn't say needed though.

Lol
I don't see the point.
My mother or his would see over our kids.
Then my sisters or my aunts or grand aunts

Special relationships kinda spring up on their own.
I have a fav aunt who treats me special and so do my sisters.

I think it's pointless

i think a lot of people dont know what god-parents are for and use them just to have someone around to buy their kids stuff.  the purpose was for religious instruction in case the parents pass but i dont think people care much about that any more.

I don't think they are required.

I had god parents and I am a god parent. I take it very seriously.

I do think a guardian is required and should be appointed/named (legally) ASAP after birth if not before. Sad as it is, things do happen.

this exactly.
i speak to my god kids nearly every night.
when they were babies... i was their first baby sitter.
they have me wrapped around their grubby little hands.

god forbid anything ever happens to their parents (they are bro n sis)...their parents have it in their will.--- they go straight to NYCDIVA  no if ands or buts about it.

they are currently my beneficiaries....along w/ my sis (until my family dynamics change)

I have them, and they play no role in my life.
They are back in Houston.. I no longer had a relationship with them when we moved to Dallas in the early 90's.
