- Wedding: September 2013
So I’m in an awkward situation and I feel like a total jerk.
Here’s the story: my aunt (my mom’s sister) told her husband a few months ago that she wanted a divorce. Everyone in our family knew for 2-3 years that this was coming as he had been financially, emotionally, and verbally abusive towards her and their children for a long time.
But apparently the divorce announcement came as a big shock to him, and this was right around the time that I was sending out my wedding invites.
I had never really planned on inviting him, because even though he never did anything to me personally, my entire family has been bad-mouthing him for years and me and my mom have spent hours on the phone with my aunt and cousins comforting them because of his hurt.
So we got married last weekend and there was a card from him with $100 inside. He signed it with all of the kids’ names too.
And of course my aunt got me a monetary gift as well and signed the kids’ names.
So now I feel like a jerk. Of course I am going to send him a thank you card but …. I don’t know. Should I address the fact that I didn’t invite him or what?
