I totally get that you don’t like her, but is she really going to wreck anything at your wedding? If you really think she would cause a scene or do something offensive, then you could talk to your uncle about why you’re not inviting her and still invite him.

However, if you just don’t like her but don’t think she’ll stir trouble up at the ceremony, I think you kind of have to invite her just because your uncle has chosen her as his wife. How would you feel if your fiance was invited to an event after you are married and you weren’t? Married couples kind of go together in situations like this, unfortunately. :/

Unfortunately, I think you have to invite her. She’s technically family now, no matter how much anyone agrees with “how.” It’s just like your mom not wanting your step-mom there or something.

Besides, your wedding sounds pretty far off (boyfriend, after college) so maybe things will change by then. Nothing to sweat over just yet.

As long as she hasn’t done anything to offend you, you have no “real reason” not to invite your Uncle’s “new” Wife.

I know it sucks, but that’s what has to happen sometimes.

Either way, if you don’t invite the wife. You’ll probably upset your Uncle too.
