Nephew Getting Married

by Ann

I have been divorced from my ex for 15 years. My nephew is getting married and I just found out that my ex and his wife were invited. My nephew nor my sister said anything about it to me. Am I wrong in thinking that a respectful decision would have been as least to let me know that my ex was being invited to the wedding and not find out from outside family members?

Hi Ann,

Thank you for your question. Who someone decides to invite is a personal choice. That is not your issue. It would have been nice if your sister would have told you that they planned to invite your ex-husband, but they still have a right to invite who they wish despite the protest of others. I can only surmise that your sister did not think this would be an issue, but it would have been courteous for her to tell you as oppose to you finding out second hand. The essence of etiquette is not putting others in awkward positions. From your note, it is obvious that you feel a bit awkward about not be told.
