"Should I invite dad's girlfriend to my wedding?"
Wednesday's Virtual Mailbag comes from Sarah:
I’m getting married in September and I’m stressing out over the guest list. My parents divorced two years ago, and my father wants to invite his girlfriend to my wedding. This is a sore topic for my mom, because she believes my dad cheated on her…with his current girlfriend. My mom calls her “the slutty mistress” and doesn’t want her anywhere near the wedding, let alone near her. My dad insists that she’s not a “mistress,” and he wants her included in our family occasion.
I know it will be awkward for my mom, but I don’t have a problem with my dad’s girlfriend. He doesn’t want her ostracized by the family anymore because he says things are getting serious between the two of them. However, I know my mom will be miserable at my wedding if she’s there, and it’s just going to put a dark cloud over my wedding day.
Help! What do I do? Do I not invite my dad’s girlfriend out of respect to my mom, or do I ask my mom to suck it up, out of respect to my dad? How do I choose?
