It’s not about you or your wedding.  It’s about them and their relationship.  If you’re going to be close to him/his family after the divorce anyway the shower is a good time for people to practice being “grown up” about things and interacting with one another on a social basis.   There is not reason that you or your wedding should be effected by what is going on in their relationship.  Think about it, kids of divorced parents get married all the time and they manage to have a fun wedding.  Personally I don’t think anyone should have been told they made this decision until after your wedding was over, especially since it’s really no one’s business and your big day is so close!

Your step-dad’s sister is giving you a shower because she wants to.  I’ve hosted showers for young women who I weren’t close to but did so because of my relationship with their Future Mother-In-Law or mom.  This is okay because it is in support of a young couple starting their life together.  She wouldn’t have offered if she didn’t care in some way.  You have nothing to do with the relationship of your mom and step-dad. Don’t worry about having a continuing relationship after your mom separates from this family.  I’m just sorry your mother didn’t keep this information to herself until after your wedding. 

Go enjoy your shower, bring a gift for the hostess, be gracious to each person there and enjoy yourself.  Best wishes.

@MissChirpie: Wow, my mom left my stepdad a couple of months ago too. It’s crazy. It’s like you’re super sad about your famsily, and yet so happy about your wedding. Really hard place to be in.
