Is it possible that her reasons are also partly financial?  I mean, if you invited M, then they could share the cost of travel (since clearly they are not welcome in your mother’s home).  Maybe she can’t afford to attend two weddings in four months without M also coming to split the cost?

I also think you are being a bit melodramatic about this.  You have a very good reason not to invite M, however, that doesn’t mean L has to share your opinion, nor approve of it.  By not inviting an aunt who lives with another, you’re causing a lot of drama for her, because now she has to choose between the person she LIVES with and someone she hasn’t seen in (however many) years.  If I was Auntie L, even if I agreed with your reason, I wouldn’t attend either.  It would be too much to handle explaining to M why she is “choosing sides.”  Maybe consider how her choice will impact HER life?
