I would ask him what he thinks. I don’t think I would sit with them unless it is what he wants. 

You could also try to find a couple other people to sit with and just have a nice casual conversation with his parents if you cross paths.

@goodbread22:  Wow. I am so sorry you have to deal with this! 

There probably isn’t a perfect way to handle it. If he graduated while you were dating before your engagement, you probably would have still sat with his parents. It’s totally understandable that you don’t want to be emotional in front of them and that it would be very difficult to keep your composure around them. 

If I were you I think I would invite some friends to come with me. Maybe even get there nice and early, get settled before his parents get there. That way, you see them, waive cause you’re already seated & you can go find them to say “hello! Nice to see you. I wish I could stay but there are about 5,000 people I know who graduated and I want to grab them before they are whisked away!” and get the hell outta there.
