So I got a question. We’re doing our programs currently and where we would list the groom’s parents, I’m not sure what to do! Future Mother-In-Law has the same last name as Future Father-In-Law, but they are not married anymore. In fact, they’ve been divorced for about 25 years. Do we list them as (insert fake names): Jessica McGroom and Johnathan McGroom? Whereas my parents (married) are listed as: Anne and James McBride? I don’t want to be awkward and imply they are married since that won’t go over well. Advice? I was thinking about listing them on separate lines also, whereas my parents would be on one line.

Eeeek! That’s a tough one. We didn’t put our parents names on the invitations at all so I’m definitly not an expert on this. But…
I would put their names on separate lines like this:
You & Financee
Along with their parents,
Jack & Jane Smith,
Invite you to join them ……. yada, yada, yada
It shows they are sparate couples even though they have the same last name

I’ve got the same issue – Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law are divorced but have the same last name (as does FFIL’s wife). I was going to list them in the program exactly like you said – with them on their own lines and my folks on one line together.
