 whilst one set of children from one family are overweight the other set from the other family have either drug problems or are school dropouts

gotta say not inviting someone because they are overweight is new

If I was you, I would ask myself just how much of a problem I think it would really cause to not invite one set of cousins to the ceremony. If the answer is a lot, I’d ask myself if inviting them after all in order to keep the peace is something I will be able to put up with. If the problems that them being there may cause ends up outweighing how upset you think your auntie/s would be, then for sure stick to your guns.

Is there any reasonable explanation you could give to them that is also true, like you’re only inviting people to the ceremony who you actually see and spend time with fairly regularly?

Orrrr of course you could not invite any cousins to keep it just to close friends and close family or just invite them all and warn them to keep the peace or else they’ll feel your wrath.

Im actually not inviting ANY of my dad’s side of the family. They are messy and all they do is gossip about you. They dont even treat you like family. This past christmas, after not seeing them for the past 4 years, my dad invited me to come over there with him. I felt obligated to because he does so much for me, saying no just seemed disrespectful. However, after arriving, I came in and sat down in the living room (and other people were in there) it took them 30 mins before even speaking to me and acknowledging that I was even there!!! They never gave me a hug or anything. Thankfully, I realized that I had left the baby’s formula at home! Thank you Jesus! That was my escape. I dont plan on seeing them again. The people that actually mattered to me on that side, grandmother and grandpa, have passed so there is no use in trying to further communicate with people that just wants to add unnecessary drama in your life.
