Sister In Law's Wedding, husband and I separated. Should I go?

by NR
(Chicago)

My husband and I recently separated (less than a week ago). His sister's wedding is this weekend. We where both invited over 6 months ago. I initiated the separation, many trust issues with him. I am really contemplating divorce. I did send her a text letting her know I was not going to make it, due to the circumstances but I wished her the best. She said hopefully we can work out our problem so I could go. She said to go still. I would like to go, I would feel ackward. Im not sure how I would feel seeing him. I do not want him to sweet talk me, and con me to taking him back. He betrayed me and at this moment I cant look past it. What would be the "correct" thing to do?

Dear NR,

Taking your marital tension to someone's special celebration is not appropriate. Since you said you will be uncomfortable and feel awkward, I suggest you stay away from the wedding. Send your sister-in-law a note explaining your decision in a few words without blaming anyone. Let her know that the reason you are not attending is to keep harmony on her special day. She will appreciate that.

Take care. Divorce is never easy and family relationships take awhile to work themselves out.
