Am I obligated to invite Grandma to my graduation ceremony?


(California)

I am graduating from College in a few months, and I only have 6 tickets. I have given one each to my boyfriend, sister, mom, dad and my Grandma (mom's mom) however I have a friend flying in for the ceremony and my Dad says I am obligated to give the 6th ticket to his mother instead of this friend. Am I? Grandma doesn't spend any time with me or my sister, has never supported our school efforts in anyway and we rarely talk.

You and your father must work this one out together. However, I haven't read any good manners instructions that states grandparents have to spend the requisite time and effort with their grandchild in order to earn an invitation to a family celebration. ​You might want to re-think your perception of this relationship.

Good manners always requires a gracious attitude.​
