"Should I invite dad's girlfriend to my wedding?"
Wednesday's Virtual Mailbag comes from Sarah:
Iâ€™m getting married in September and Iâ€™m stressing out over the guest list.Â My parents divorced two years ago, and my father wants to invite his girlfriend to my wedding.Â This is a sore topic for my mom, because she believes my dad cheated on herâ€¦with his current girlfriend.Â My mom calls her â€śthe slutty mistressâ€ť and doesnâ€™t want her anywhere near the wedding, let alone near her.Â My dad insists that sheâ€™s not a â€śmistress,â€ť and he wants her included in our family occasion.
I know it will be awkward for my mom, but I donâ€™t have a problem with my dadâ€™s girlfriend. He doesnâ€™t want her ostracized by the family anymore because he says things are getting serious between the two of them.Â However, I know my mom will be miserable at my wedding if sheâ€™s there, and itâ€™s just going to put a dark cloud over my wedding day.Â
Help! Â What do I do? Do I not invite my dadâ€™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?
