For every rule there is an exception. Even those couples who do use a cutoff for plus ones, often make exceptions for immediate family and the bridal party.

Which is worth more to you- family harmony or being right on a point of etiquette?

I think having a child together means just as much as being engaged/living together. I would allow your sister to bring him.

Unless there’s a real threat that he or your disapproving relatives would cause a scene, then invite him.  It’s not worth the headache.

One of my favorite sayings, especially when dealing with family or marital relations, is “Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?”

Your sister has a child with him and may be living together she deserves a plus one. If he doesn’t get along with your family seat them at another table.

Yeah, whether your family likes him or not, he’s forever a part of her life now…if she’s still dating him, you may as well treat him like family. He very well may be some day.

I will agree it was rude of heer to write him in she should have called you, however you were also rude because she should have had a plus one to begin with

You should just let it slide.  It’s not worth her not being there. Even if they don’t live together, they are together and have a child together.  As your immediate family, she is an exception.  She should get to bring her family.  Plus, I’m assuming the reasn she doesn’t live with him and still lives at home is money.  I’m sure if they could they would live together.

@Krises:  Yah, this. I’m going to have a similar issue with the daughter of some family friends who got herself knocked up by her boyfriend of two months.
