I am vaccinated, my fiancee is not. His reasons seem logical (ie he's not a crazy conspiracy guy). My sister has her big Indian wedding in the US coming up in December (150+ people), and has requested everyone be vaccinated. Should I ask her to make an exception for my fiancee with certain precautions in place (ie, testing each day, mask, minimize crowd interaction like dance floors)?

Two points: 1. The only reason to not be vaccinated at this point is if their primary care physician has deemed it a legit medical issue. Any other reason, be it conspiracy theories or otherwise, and they are an anti-vaxxer 2. If I were your sister, I'd only even think of an exception if #1 holds good, as in, physician told to not get vaccinated

I am really interested in knowing the “non conspiracy theory” logic he has for not vaccinating please - unless it’s because of health condition suggested by doctors .

Same!

No. It’s not your fiancé’s day to be asking for special treatment. He should just not go. Don’t mess up someone’s wedding day with this, especially if they’ve asked everyone to get vaccinated.

OP - If I were you, I would find another date to accompany me for my sister’s wedding. I may even dump my fiancé’s ass unless he didn’t take the vaccine for medical reasons

Think about the upside and the downside. Upside - your fiancé attends a wedding and maybe gets to meet your family. Downside - he contracts COVID and becomes a high-risk case. Hopefully the others are vaccinated so will likely not have severe outcomes if they were to contract COVID. You’re the best judge of how these two balance each other out! In your shoes, I wouldn’t have requested my sibling but that’s my personal choice.

Could you provide details about logical reasons unless they are medically related? My wife is a doctor and that is the only exception scenario. It maybe logical to you but not logical according to medical science or interest of public health. Also, think about how others are going to perceive him if he goes.

No, your fiancé is not logical unless he can’t take vaccination for medical reasons. All other reasons are just headlines from fox post election and CNN pre-election. I would leave him home and enjoy the wedding with other 150+ vaccinated people.

I would look at this from a different lens. Your fiance has the right to exercise his civil liberties and not get vaccinated. Your sister has the right to create a safe environment for her wedding. That is part of her civil liberties. Asking her to make an exception for your fiance would degrade the safety of the environment, especially since vaccinated people - while better protected - are not at 0 risk. Especially the elderly. Given vaccinated can transmit the virus, and unvaccinated are more likely to get infected, you should have a negative pcr before attending the wedding.

like

If not ready to take vaccine, then he should be ready to miss social activities for his own safety and others like children. You should also think about getting negative tests if you stay with him. Many unvaccinated people are getting sick and dying across US now. He should think about getting the vaccine. Maybe read about people regretting not getting vaccine at their death beds.

No exceptions. I would ask him not to come to the wedding.
