    I would be the bigger person and invite them.  It’s not as if you’ll be sitting with them – you’ll be graduating (congrats!).  If you don’t invite them it could definitely cause more problems later.  For instance, I didn’t walk at my graduation, so I obviously didn’t invite my SO’s parents.  Apparently they though I just didn’t invite them and were pissed about it!  When my SO found out he tried to smooth things over, but by then they had worked themselves up over something that was a non-issue because I didn’t even attend my own graduation!  :/  Just invite them; it will cause less drama in the long run, even if they don’t attend.

    I would invite them. That way they know you care and even if they say no your SO will be happy you asked. My FMIL don’t always get along but she and my FFIL are coming to my graduation in the spring. They’re happy I asked and saw them as my family.

    I invited my man’s mom & her hubby, but not siblings. Part of the reason was we were moving away to CA a month later together & I wanted our families to be able to meet each other & feel better about the whole thing. Worked out great, his mom was happy to be thought of as family- esp. since he gave me a promise ring at the botanical gardens afterwards with his mom, my mom, & my grandma all watching. I seriously think that may be the only reason they love him so much! =)

    I say wait and see how things go. You don’t need to send out grad invites until much much closer to the event so I wouldn’t even worry about it for the next few months.
