It might be nice to send two, but I don’t think it really matters.  As long as they aren’t moving any time soon, just send one.

Yes, it is appropriate that you send a seperate invite to all the adult head of households.

I would send a separate invite for each couple.

I didn’t follow the rule of sending a separate invite to the adult children in their parents’ homes. And if it’s family, you can clarify by mouth that your SIL can bring her BF. That’s how we did it, my fiance’s brother asked us if he could bring his GF before we even sent out invites. 

We just sent an additional invite to his brothers’ girlfriend at her house.

If kids living at home are over the age of 18 then you should send a seperate invite to each person.  One addressed to MIL and another to SIL/ Her BF.  Because SIL is in a serious (I would assume:) relationship with BF then his name should also appear on her invitation.  I know it seems tedious, but it makes for better relationships later.  My FI’s borthers live at home with their mom and we are sending seperate save the dates and invitations to each person.  Both brothers mentioned that they liked getting their own save the dates BTW.

Send one to SIL/BF together and one to MIL (as long at the SIL/BF are adults which I’m assuming they are?).
