A “plus 1” to me means someone I’ve never met/someone who I have no connection with or someone’s gf/bf. The last one has caused some upset, but I never expected an invite to my FI’s friends weddings before we were engaged. I have no obligation to that person, unless we’re close or they’re very serious.  My cousin made a huge fuss about me inviting her BF, I said “well if you’re still together then fine” She has a bad track record & they’ve broken up since the huge uproar she caused!  

I totally agree with you that serious couples (married or engaged) are considered a social unit! You cannot invite one without the other. It’s actually an insult to invite a guest & not invite the person they are married to!

A +1 is a random stranger you have never met before and will never see again.
