@soexcited123:  if you aren’t invited alongside your unmarried partner than quite frankly the couple doesn’t consider you a “social unit” and that’s not right or wrong of them, that’s just their opinion. It might be hurtful but what can you do about it? It’s their wedding. I tried to be inclusive at my wedding so it wasn’t an issue for me, but I do know people who subscribe to the “no ring no bring” line of etiquette and nobody seems to have been pissed off about it. I don’t think there’s any right or wrong answer, and it’s culturally and regionally dependant tbh. 
ps. Lol just realised this post is old! xo

@happyjuju:  Ok but again if the couple has been together that long and they are presenting themselves as serious it isn’t anyone else’s place to make that determination or call that they aren’t serious enough to be deemed an invite to a wedding. Also the “no ring no bring” rule again outdated and just doesn’t work in today’s society. That saying just has such an air of superiority to it. Again there are couples now a days who have been together a decade before marriage and people who get engaged or married after a year. So the couple that has been together a decade isn’t invited but the other person who has been with their SO for a year does. Nope not ok. Some shit doesn’t fall under difference of opinion some shot is just rude to do.
