I do not want my exhusband to invite his girlfriend which caused the divorce to my sons graduation. Is this an acceptable request? Who is wrong?

Graduation Attendance
by: Ms P Etiquette


Is the graduation event by invitation only? Does your son want his father at his graduation?

It is your son's graduation. If his father attends & guests are allowed you cannot control whom he brings with him. Your choices are, invite your ex and/or allow him to attend and let the rest go. I admit bringing his girlfriend to the event shows poor decision making skills and poor manners. This is especially true where he should be doing everything possible to prevent any discord in the family. However, you have absolutely no control over anyone else, just over your reaction to their behavior.

I hope this helped.
