This should be his decision. They are his family and he should decide which of them he wants to invite. Even if there is the potential for misbehaving they are still his family. If he decides not to invite the then thats a big relief for you but it should be his call

@mizzrose:Oh I see well if he says he doesnt want them then I guess you dont need to invite them, Some famiies just have more issues that others. My Fi doesnt want to invite his dad, because he was never around while he was growing up. I didnt really understand it at 1st but I just went along with it

@mizzrose: Then I would respect his wishes. Honestly, you don’t want a wedding where at the back of your mind you know that things are going to go awry any minute now. If he doesn’t want them there, don’t push the issue. I mean, you don’t want them there either.

I know where you are coming from (FI’s family doesnt fight eachother or anything but they are not very fond of me!) It got so bad that all contact was cut. Slowly I feel Fiance inching them back into his life though..and I can honestly say that I am very happy about this. Family is family and although they may act up, it would prob be worse if you don’t invite them. I say, invite them and hire security.

His family has Some Nerve!!!  I don’t feel like you should have to have people at your wedding who aren’t loving and supportive, so that wife should absolutely not be invited. Good manners says send invites to his parents at least, and to the sister you do love of course, but you are not required to host other peoples bad behavior.
