    Since they’re dating, I’d invite him. Not because he’s the father of her unborn child. If they weren’t dating, I’d say to give your sister a plus one and she can decide if she wanted to bring him. Just tell her that you want her to be happy for you getting married, and you’ll agree to give her a break about her baby things and quit fighting. You’ll feel better, i think.

    I think sometimes you just have to suck it up and be diplomatic about situations like these.  I totally know how you feel bc my Father-In-Law have a nephew (so FI’s cousin) in Hawaii who “should be” invited.  The thing is, he’s kind of a jackass and has done some things to raise some eyebrows in the family.  Still, he is family and we are inviting all of his siblings (who are cool and we love them)… so yeah, booooo to lame family members!

    I think that a lot of your post is about their relationship and whether you approve of it.  However, your wedding is about YOUR relationship, and the people who attend are saying that they support YOU and your FH.  I think that you should invite him.  It’s not yours to say that they should marry or should break up.  But if they are together (and obviously serious, now with the baby) then it’s best to invite them.  Id’ also just drop the whole subject.  Clearly you are on a different page than your inlaws, and expressing your point of view at this point isn’t a good idea.  Let your Future Sister-In-Law live her own life, and focus instead on your wedding!  Once you forget about it, you can start looking forward to your big day again.
