What would you do if you were invited to a shower for someone you've never met? Would you send a gift if you decline??
I was invited to a shower for H's cousin (2 hours away) they got pregnant shortly after they started dating and had a private wedding ceremony right after. H's cousin is the father, I've never met his wife and haven't seen the cousin in > 1 year. I want to decline and not send a gift but my husband is making me feel guilty. It doesn't help that they no-showed to our wedding and cost us $175, and we haven't heard a word from them since.
Is it rude to not send a gift? I don't want to respond to rudeness with rudeness but it just rubs me the wrong way.
