What is anyone supposed to say? You have not provided details, nor have you asked a question.

If these boys were raised as siblings in a blended family, your son really should be invited unless there has been some sort of terrible falling out between them. Is it possible that something that you are unaware of seriously damaged their relationship? Can your Darling Husband ask his son his reasoning for not inviting your son?

kimsplace :  He may not have sent an invite as it was an assumption that he was coming. Talk to your husband. This is ridiculous.

Do you actually know that he intentionally wasn’t invited?

At 32, your son is a grown man. He can talk to the groom, if he wants to.

kimsplace :  Is there a reason your son doesn’t know he wasn’t invited? Would he not have figured this out by now if you received an invitation and he didn’t? He is 32 so would certainly get his own invitation even if he still lives at home with you.

Unless there is some valid reason that you are not sharing (e.g. your son is a drug dealer or pedophile). he should have been invited, even if the couple thought he might not be able to attend.

Now that your husband has brought this to your son’s attention, he and his Fiance should right heir wrong and send him an invitation.

kimsplace :  This likely won’t be a popular answer but I simply would not attend (along with your husband). The whole family should be invited.

kimsplace :  your son still lives with you at the ages of 32? You got other problems than the stupid wedding
