Opinions on skids and weddings
Not sure which category to put this under so went General. I need opinions on this. I have a friend of mine that is going to be married to a man with 2 children. She has none. This man has gone through court to get divorced, settle, and now trying to get a bit more custody of his children. She chose to date him while all of this was happening. Now a year later they are getting married.
She says the ex wife is HC, and the children are stand offish with her. She vents a lot about the ex, and the kids. On social media it's a different story. She portrays a happy family. Takes photos of them all together. She says 'our kids' and posts their birthdays like she dotes on them. It's like two different situations. To avoid conflict with the BM they are keeping the date of the wedding a secret from the skids, until the weekend of the wedding.. and said in their invites to keep it a secret to avoid conflict of 'our kids'.
We have been invited to their wedding and she's not having her husbands kids in the wedding. She said she wants to be about her. Apparently her fiancé is ok with it. We will be crossing interstate and she has invited DH to bring his kids along as it will be our weekend with them, and our bio, but no other kids are apparently invited. She wants to put her fiancé's kids and my DH kids on a table by themselves. My DH refuses to sit away from his kids. He said if they are not with me at the table, he's not going. Is my DH in the wrong here? DH even spoke to her fiancé and the fiancé said it's just easier for them to have the kids at the same table, and pointed out that not even his parents will be sitting with his kids. They didn't want to show 'favouritism to DH if people see him sitting with his kids'. DH is flabbergasted that the children aren't even sitting with their family at their fathers wedding. The skids won't be comfortable sitting away from DH at the wedding in another state where they won't know anyone. Is DH in the wrong here for having such firm views on this? I would love to see what other people think on this.
