If they are living together, I would assume that they are together and write both their names on the invite.  If she was really done with him, she would move out of the house.

Since they live together, I think it’d be strange to not use his name on the invitation. I would address it both of them. If they’re so off/on, I don’t think it’s your responsibility to assess their status at every moment. I don’t think your friend would be offended, but she might be if it appeared like you were trying to avoid inviting her SO.

I would just address it to both of them, as she might interpret you leaving him off the invite as not being supportive.  She can make the call then, and if she does decide she might bring an altnerate date she can discuss it with you later.

I would just ask her what she prefers for you to do. If you are really concerned about how to address it just tell her what you were thinking and see if she is okay with it. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that!
