If your mother is stressed and doesn’t want to have guests, I’d leave you SO behind for Thanksgiving. However, whether or not they throw a party, I’d bring him along to whatever family function you have next, especially if it will be more than just you and the parents.

I would stick by your SO, they shouldn’t be splitting you up like this ever. Make it clear that you two will only attend events as a unit.

What about looking at this invitation as more of a simple family dinner than a holiday celebration? Would you feel differently about going then? Because to me, that seems more accurate since you’re not leaving your SO alone on the actual holiday to attend some big family party.

@Creiddylad:  If the Hannukah invitation doesn’t pan out, do you think you could invite your parents to spend the holiday at your house? Maybe that way you could get to celebrate with them and SO, if they don’t want to host.

Good luck!
