My “significant other” and I have lived together for 8 years. We are both divorced with kids. Our children are all adults and over the years both mine have gotten married.
He attended both weddings as my “partner” and there were no issues or problems with my ex. We have been divorced a long time.
His oldest son is getting married this June and I just found out that I am not invited to the wedding. His son doesn’t want to make his Mother uncomfortable. Now, I have never met his Mother and don’t know why I would make her uncomfortable (my SO and I got together YEARS after they were divorced) but it’s his wedding and I think he has the right to invite who ever he wants.
My problem is, my SO now wants to boycott his own son’s wedding. He said if I’m not invited he won’t go. I think that is a mistake and while I am flattered by his loyalty I would not go now even if I were to be invited at this point.
I think he should just go to the wedding. Someday he may regret not going. My feelings are a little hurt at not being invited but he isn’t MY son and it really is no big deal to me not to go.
Would you push him to go?
