I am inviting my widowed cousin, her teenage son, and her long-time but not live in boyfriend. I do not have her boyfriend’s address, nor would I feel comfortable just sending him his own invitation. I don’t feel okay with just saying “and guest” as he has been to all family gatherings, etc for longer than the Fiance and I have even been together (>6 years!). I am not doing inner envelopes.
I would appreciate the help 🙂

I would probably just do it something like this:
Cousin’s Name, Boyfriend’s Name, Son’s Name

@Spartanbee: Ohh that’s tough! Is her son like a son to her BF? Or are they not that close? I would consider sending one invite to your cousin and her Boyfriend or Best Friend, and a separate one to the teenage son. Otherwise, list all three of them.

@GeekChic: I agree. I’d just list them.

Is the teenage son an adult meaning over 18? If so, then give him his own invitation.
However, if you want to follow etiquette, it would be addressed to the household. I.E. The Smith Family
If they do not live together and are not married then he gets, +guest.

If you know the name of the long time boyfriend, then you should list his name on the invitation. To do otherwise, would be to insult him. If the son is ove 18 send him his own invite, Otherwise just list all three names on the envelope.
