My uncle was married to his ex-wife for about 20 years, and they recently went through a really messy divorce. I was never SUPER close to either of them, but we all spent time together at family reunions, and they have 3 children together (my cousins.) He’s now remarried and I’ve invited him and his new wife to the wedding. My mom thinks I should invite his ex-wife.
I’m torn about it because my whole life, I’ve known her as my aunt. Is that supposed to change now that they’re divorced and he’s remarried? I don’t think she would come, as it would be super awkward for her to show up at her ex-husband’s family event, but is it awkward of me to invite her?

I think it might be an awkward situation. I would worry about there possibly being a scene if she did decide to go?
I can see why you would want to invite her as you think of her as your aunt…could you possible talk to your uncle about it or would that be awkward as well?

We invited FI’s uncle’s ex-wife and her new husband.
My FMIL recently came with a ridiculous request to invite the ex-wife’s new husband’s brother and his wife. Um F- that.
If you are close to her, invite her.

She lives really far away, so I really don’t think she’ll show up/cause a scene…actually, its possible my uncle won’t even come.
Ugh guest lists are so stressful…
