Graduation tickets limited

by Sally
(Doylestown Pa USA)

My daughter gets 7 tickets to her graduation. Her father and I are divorced and he has a GF. He also wants to bring his mother. There are only four tickets for us collectively and I would like to bring her Aunt since my parents are diseased. Is is right for him to get 3 tickets and I only get one? His GF had no part in my daughters life while my sister did.

Dear Sally,

First, congratulations on your daughter's graduation! Now, who makes this decision? If it is your daughter's job to decide, please do not pressure her to give you more tickets. This is her big day and kids from divorced homes frequently feel like they are forced to "choose". That in itself is very poor etiquette. Be gracious about her decision, pleasant at the event and happy for your daughter. This graduation will be forgotten, but how you make your daughter feel over it will stay with her forever.

Take care.
