Invite him and leave the option up to him. Invite the ex wife if you want also.

@Missymalumba:  Be the bigger person and send him an invite. If they decline, then so be it. Let them know the ex-wife will be at the wedding. It is a shame your Brother-In-Law is behaving this way, but it is not your fault nor your Fiance. He can extend the offer of being a Groomsmen or Bridesmaid or Best Man to his brother, but be prepared if he declines. It seems like his new gf has him on a short lease.

Invite them both and he can decide if he comes. I wouldn’t try to make friends with the new girlfriend as she sounds like a witch. I do think regardless of the way he went about leaving his wife, and that his family had good reason to be upset with his behavior he may be acting out of defensiveness and be upset that the family didn’t take his side.

I am really good friends with one of my brothers ex, she doing a reading at my wedding, and quite honestly I plan on being friends with here regardless of whom he is with. I am respectful about my brothers feelings, and happy that they are civil to each other, out of respect for that there are certain events if they are smaller closer family affiars that I would leave her out of it. But she lives overseas so thankfully its not an issue I deal with. Basically hanging out with the ex wife on your own time is none of bil or new girlfriends business.
