From the aisle out,I would seat your Mom and her FI, then your Dad and his girlfriend. Most pews have enough room that he can easily go by the first two people to get to his seat.

Otherwise seat your Mom and her FI in the front row with your Dad and his GF in the second row.

We had a similar issue for our wedding, DH’s Dad is remarried and his Mother still single…I never gave it any thought! LOL. I had to look at a photo to see how they were seated…people pretty much sat wherever they wanted at the ceremony anyway regardless of what I had planned for family in the front row. (Same went for the reception too…hours spent on seating chart – minutes for guests to swaps tables when they arrived). Anyway, we had DH’s mother first in the row, then his Dad, then his Dad’s wife. So sounds like what julies1949 suggested just plus your Mom’s FI. It should work out just fine.

DBS5127:  I have a similar situation. I’m seating my mom then brothers then stepmom and my dad. My mom has a lot of anger towards my dad and stepmom which is completely unfounded. So my FI and I decided that we would put my two brothers in between her and them as a buffer because she would most likely cause a scene if she had to sit in a different row.
