Can I Ask?

Dear Jocelyn,
Is it polite to ask host why someone considered important has not been invited to a party / gathering?
-Curious

Dear Curious,
It is not rude, per se, to ask about who has been invited. However, it can produce an awkward situation. If the host had a falling out with the person, then asking about why they haven't been invited can put the host in the sticky situation of coming up with an excuse without revealing private details. It is best to assume the host knows what they are doing, and simply do not ask about it.
