- Wedding invite dilemma…
One of my best mates got divorced a few years ago. I knew his wife pretty well – she was friends with my ex and we all used to hang out together. She wasn’t that nice a person in those days – no empathy at all – but learnt a lot with the divorce and that and because of various friends-in-common I stayed in touch with her and actually get on pretty well these days. My mate doesn’t speak to her at all – he’s happily remarried now.
She’s now got re-married too and I have an invite to the reception in July. But not sure if I should accept. My overriding loyalty is clear – to my mate, and just not sure he’d be too comfortable me going. Not in a big way, just probably a bit uncomfortable. I could raise it with him direct, but thought I’d gather the collective wisdom of STW first cos even having the conversation could be awkward? Options as I see it are:
1. Turn the invite down with an excusePosted 10 years ago
2. Go and don’t tell my mate. He’d almost certainly never know but I’d feel guilty for not telling him
3. Have a chat with my mate and check he’d be ok and then accept/decline
