Morning ladies, happy new year! 2013 is our year & I can't freaking wait! aha.
I will try to make this as short & easy as possible but that might be tough. FI & I are getting ready to send invites out this month & this morning I was going over the guestlist. So here it begins.. my moms side of the family is very tight knit & close. We do alot of things together, everyone's involved for holidays & events. I lost my uncle to brain cancer in May 2009 & he left behind his wife (my moms sister) & teenage son. That aunt has been seeing someone for the last couple of years & he has 3 kids. I don't know them very well, they attend our family events (thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.) because my aunt & him are there. Now as of right now, we were inviting my aunt, him*, my cousin & his girlfriend. Now.. I'm wondering if I have to invite his kids? Which bumps up their "portion of invites" from 4 people to 7. His oldest son I've met only once & his other 2 kids are like I said at family events. My FI & I don't interact with his kids.. they don't interact with us & my aunts relationship status isn't married or engaged to this guy... so question is, do I have to invite the kids or can I just invite him for the sake of her?
Sorry again if it's confusing or long.. I just need some input on which way I can go with this dilemma.
