Ex-Wife Invited to Brother's Wedding INSTEAD of Current Partner???
My female friend has lived with her divorced life partner for years. Her partner has children with his ex-wife.
Her partner's brother is getting married and the invite list includes the children, the partner and his ex-wife, but NOT my friend. The brother gets along with my friend, but says that he cares about the ex-wife and doesn't want her to be uncomfortable.
How should my friend react? Her partner is arguing that they can't control the guest list, and that she shouldn't be angry at him for going and not protesting. I'm on the other side, arguing that this is total BS and that her partner should be sticking up for her at all costs.
What do others think? I don't want to lead her down the wrong path!
