My partner and I are getting married in July. We've been together 25 years, but now that Maryland says it is legal, we are getting married. We are utilizing Maryland venues and vendors since we want to spend our budget on Maryland-based companies.
Anyway, I plan to invite some coworkers. My adminstrative assistant is my right-hand person at work. She's worked for me for 10 years and knows my partner. However, she has stated that she is a Christian and believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. Years ago, we agreed to disagree, since we are both professionals.
I want to invite her, but I don't want her to feel uncomfortable. I don't want her to think that if she doesn't attend, it will affect her job (it won't, she's a fantastic AA). But if I don't invite her, I don't want hurt feelings.
