debcon15:  Your FIL’s are hosting and they have a budget. They are actively telling you that inviting the former exchange student is going over their budget. You and your family need to respect that. Them telling you that if the exchange student is invite it means they need to invite the aunts and uncle is them politely telling you that you are being rude and you are putting guestlist and financial pressure on them. Take the hint.

Offering to pay, especially for only one place, is insulting to the hosts. You are kind of taking over the guestlist for their party.

“Those guests can come, they just feel like it’s going over budget. My family and I are not saying that there are people that cannot attend.”


So basically, those guests CANNOT come because his parents cant afford it. I feel like you’re being petty and letting a family friend(the student) cause a rift between you and your future in-laws. Pick your battles.
