I don’t get it… why is your aunt staying if she’s not happy witht the “arrangement”? sorry, but she’s choosing to be the victim

@bebero:  Maybe she’s financially dependent and trapped.

@ekee:  I definitely would not invite her. If you don’t mind me asking what country are they in?

Your uncle can buy his mistress a plane ticket, but he better be dropping her ass off at the mall or something on the way to your wedding. 

In absolutely NO way should she be allowed at the ceremony or reception.  If he tries to bring his mistress, I’d kick the both of them out and let your aunty in.  The gall of some people.

@ekee:  Wow…that is such an awkward situation. If you don’t want her there, don’t invite her. Simple is that. If she throws a fit (and it sounds like she will), explain that your wedding is a private, family event. Since she isn’t YOUR family, she isn’t invited. If you need an excuse, just politely say that the venue capacity is limited and yout guest list is close family and friends only.

Not sure if this is a cultural thing, but I wouldn’t invite him either since he’s abusive to your Aunt.

Holy judgemental thread batman. Can we please stop judging another cultures marital practices.

@ekee:  This woman is not a mistress so please stop calling her that.

If your Aunt is in an unhappy marriage then rather than giving her private time with her husband shouldn’t you be helping her to get out of her unhappy marriage?
