Why do I feel obligated...what to do?
DH and I have 4 children total. My 2 bios from a previous marriage and his 2 from a previous marriage, none together.
The three oldest are all on track to graduate high school this year. We've paid for all graduation expenses.
I want to order the graduation banners and plan a graduation party. Here is my issue...six months ago SD got mad at us over a rule in our home. Since then SD has been staying other places, only coming to our house a few times (maybe 6 nights in six months). She's basically cut us out of her life, but I don't want to hurt my DH by not including her with my bios. I've always done the same for them all and feel obligated to continue to do so. The graduation party isn't a big deal because it's basically all my friends and family coming. I don't want to spend the extra money, specifically on the banner for our yard, when she isn't staying at our house.
I realize this may seem trivial, but if I don't do the right thing (or the right way) it could hurt my marriage.
I'd like to hear what other SP's would do?
