I have a question. A few months ago I got an email from a friend in Florida about hotel information for her wedding*, which was going to be Thanksgiving weekend. I never did anything about it because I was waiting for the invitation to come in the mail and it never did. She never asked if I got the invite, so I assume one was never sent. She is a friend of mine from college, but we've lost touch over the past few years. We would send occasional emails, but most of the contact in the last year or two has consisted of being sent a link to photos of her daughter* and exchanging Christmas cards. Am I obligated to buy a wedding gift? *The short story: it's her second marriage, and she's marring the father of her baby. Not that this matters, I guess.
