They are presenting themselves as a married couple. You should follow suit. Anything about the intricacies of their relationship should not be addressed during addressing of envelopes.

I would call her and ask her what she wants.  Even if her invite goes out a week late, so be it.  the rule about inviting married couples is about making guests comfortable.   Just tell her, I would like to send out invites, it is up to you if your DH is invited.  If you put his name on invite, and especially if he sees invitation, you could be letting him make choice, not her.

At the moment they are presenting themselves as a married couple. So I’d send their invitation on that perception. If circumstances change drastically then it is up to her to advise you. Otherwise I’d just work on “face value” rather than what might be around the corner.
