Us kids are throwing our fathers retirement party. Guests will be paying 70.00 for the evening. Should we also pay for dads wife's dinner? Should she contribute to the party financially?

Party Payments

Dear Stephanie,

To recap the situation: You are giving your father a party marking his retirement, but the guests are giving you money to pay for the cost of the party? If everyone is paying their own way except the guest of honor, then you must pay for his wife as well. To do otherwise would be rude.
