    I was recently at a wedding where the father of the groom’s new wife was invited but didn’t come. The couple getting married were quite upset about it – to the new wife she was trying to avoid any awkwardness, to the couple it felt like she only cared about herself and wasn’t interested in supporting their marriage. There was no infidelity involved so maybe the feelings were different. Are your Mother-In-Law and FIL’s new relationships likely to last? Are their new SOs considered part of the family? If so then I think both Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law need to be able to deal with that fact, because this won’t be the last family event. I can’t imagine the hurt MIL felt about her marriage break up, but if the divorce has been finalised and she has a new partner herself it might be time to start dealing with the fact that this is reality now?

    I’m sorry you’re being put in the middle, family politics is hard especially when it’s not even your family 🙁 I hope something can be sorted out so everyone is at least partly ok with the solution!
