I have several guy friends whose girlfriends have never given me the time of day – but i invited them as a couple.

If they’re married you should invite them as a couple. I doubt you’ll have time to notice her much anyway. = )

If he’s married, you definitely can’t invite him and not her. You don’t have to spend a ton of time with her at the wedding or anything, but I’m sure it would hurt your friend (not to mention his wife) if he was invited and she wasn’t.

If you want your friend to remain your friend, then yes, you have to invite his wife.

If they’re married you have to invite her. You wont notice her and you’ll only create drama if you invite him but not her.

I’d invite them as a couple b/c it’s proper.  Who knows maybe she needs a friend and that’s why she’s unhappy?

If they’re married, you really should invite her. I’m sure you won’t even notice her on the day, so invite her and be done with it. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it, at the very least.

Be a good friend and invite her! It would most likely spare your guy friend a horrible fight or an awkward conversation with his girlfriend. That’s friendship, man! Grin and bare it, baby!

Yeah, I think you kinda have to invite her if they’re a married couple.  You wouldn’t want to hurt your friend’s feelings by leaving his wife out.

Uh … yes you should invite a married couple as a “couple” I think it is pretty rude to invite someone and not their WIFE!

Married couples are a social unit.  You need to invite her.

Yes, you have to invite her – they are married.  How mad would you be if your friends invited you to a wedding, but not your FI?

I am basically going to try to let everyone have a date, but a major rule I would def. stick with is you invite someone’s wife/husband or Fiance.
