I think you’ll regret not inviting your father’s family. I’d be upset with him over the affair too, but you are talking about his sister and mother here. What were you expecting, that they would turn their back on their brother/son and embrace his now ex-wife, who it sounds like they had a cordial but not overly close relationship with? Of course they are going to do their best to ignore the affair, because there’s nothing they can do to change it, your parents are already divorced and they understandably want to have a close relationship with their son/brother.

If I were in your shoes I’d reach out to my dad and his family and try to express to them that you’re still angry and having a hard time with your dad’s affair and everyone’s acceptance of his new wife, and that it’s difficult to see your mom in so much pain, and that you’re willing to try but need them to do some of the reaching out and try to understand where you’re coming from.

Of course, that is only if you want to have a relationship with them…it is your choice, obviously. I’d be furious with my dad too, but I don’t think I’d want to shut him out of my life forever because he is my dad, and if it were me I’d regret not having him there on my wedding day. But of course I don’t really know your relationship with your dad, I’m just speaking based on my point of view.

None of my dads family came and I didn’t even notice until yesterday – they have not said anything either we have no problems with them so I don’t know what’s up with it
