- Wedding: September 2013
So my Mom dated this guy for a few years when I was in my early teens. She actually married him in our living room in front of just the immediate family. I guess he panicked and didn’t mail in the marriage license and they broke up. They argued and fought alot, so we all think it was for the best. My brother and I have stayed connected with this man. He is still single with no kids. He has kind of been a father figure to us. (We lost our dad to suicide when we were young).
My mother really hates this guy and so does my dear old grandma. My mom has been married to her current husband for 12 years. It is a bad marriage that is circling the drain. Anyway, It would mean alot to me to have her ex at the wedding. I know he would really love it. I know he would be respectful and not approach my mom or grandma if I asked him. My mom is not the drama type, so I am not worried about a scene. I just think she would be angry about it afterwards.
She is paying for half of this wedding. I am inviting people she is requesting, that I don’t want to because of her contributions. So, can I do this? Or is just a “no”?
