Should My Stepson Be Invited To a Wedding?

Dear Jocelyn,
I am remarried, and my husband is offended because his 22 year old son is not invited to a wedding for my niece on New Years Eve. Of course their guest list is limited, but I am wondering if it appropriate for me to ask her if she can invite my step son?

Dear Stepmother
Thank you for your question. While typically a whole family is invited to a wedding (it would be rude to invite a husband without a wife, or kids without parents), this situation is a little different because it is a stepson, and he is an adult. Has your niece met him? Interacted with him? Is he included in family get togethers? If he is typically not around, then I wouldn't expect your niece to invite him. (And I would wonder why your stepson would even want to go!) But if he is included usually, then yes, it is appropriate to ask if he can be invited.

This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures impotence, bareness, diseases such as HIV/AID E.T.C You can contact him via email at { Doctorokpamenspelltemple@yahoo.com } or visit his website http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com. He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him or call me for more info +1 (914)-517-3229.

At one of the local Seattle Wedding venues, my cousin got married and her stepbrother was invited to the wedding because they had good interaction already. They were quite good friends so it wasn’t a big debate to invite him or not. So in this case as well, I would suggest if he has ever interacted with your niece then it is worth inviting otherwise it would be completely okay.
