So my husband and I are hosting New Years this year. It’s a dress up party, and I’m excited for it already 🙂 I’ve got a little dilemma in my mind (that’s probably not that big of a deal) about the guest list. I’ll give you a bit of background.
My husband’s best friend’s girlfriend broke up with him back in September after almost 5 years together. He was completely heartbroken, and we were left to pick up the pieces. Both of them have now moved on, and we’ve invited hubby’s best friend, his new girlfriend and the ex’s new partner (they technically aren’t exclusive but it’s going to happen eventually).
This girl and I had been friends since I was 14 and her 13, but I recently made the choice to cut ties with her because of some issues (she basically used me as her punching bag throughout high school). If I had it my way, I’d have nothing to do with her ever again.
Now her new guy is a part of our group, and we know that he’d want to spend New Years with her. Hubby’s best friend has remained friends with her, and hubby doesn’t care if she’s there or not. Ultimately the choice is up to me. She was already invited, but she uninvited herself once their relationship ended.
Now I’m feeling guilty because I’d hate the idea of not spending NYE with my husband. I can’t pretend that what she did is okay, but I can’t let it rule me. I won’t be seeing her if I can help it, but I’m just wondering if I should invite her just for the night, or leave her uninvited. A few of the guests invited aren’t fond of her either, but it’s NYE. Should I just invite her anyway?
