    Not inviting friend's abusive husband

    i think so -- your friend may get insulted - but i'm pretty sure that you have probably told her how you feel about her situation and it is your right not to invite him to your home -- she may not show up either but that would be up to her -- i think you have every right to not want someone who abuses your friend to be in your home

    Yes and no. more no

    Yes its you party and you can invite anyone you want but ask yourself a few questions.

    It is a girls night out party or a couples party? How is your friend going to feel if you invite her and not her husband? Are you going to put your friend in a situation where everyone will ask where is your husband tonight?

    Define abusive?

    I decided a long time ago that I do not have control over others choices. All I have control over is me, to be a good friend and be there when needed. I'm not sure I would blatantly not invite him. Why don't you suggest to your friend that she may have a better time without him.

    As always, I'm in bed with Goodness with this one. If you do invite both, invite my friend Dr. Phil Mcgraw, he's chunky.

    If you don't like him, don't invite him - it's your party. If your friend can't bear to come without her husband she can stay home.

    We still don't know how abusive it is? Is it a couple arguing in front of others or in privacy? Is it physical abuse, drug and alcohol abuse?

    their own children? or guests' children? i think unless the bride and/or groom have a very very close personal relationship with a child, children don't belong at weddings -- i never got married and never will, but i think most parents would enjoy the event more without the kids in tow

    I never been to a wedding where childeren are not invited regardless of age. Sometimes its impossible to for the parents to come events like this with bringing them. My wedding we had children it was a day event, and everyone had a good time. If it was a late evening then I would still invite them, but they are not required. Then again I've heard of some bridzillas that don't want any children even at the church, because of more snobbinsh attitudes

    i disagree -- i come from a large (7 siblings and me) family -- we all have kids -- we go camping together every year and we are pretty close -- my brothers who have married after the sisters and a couple of brothers all had kids invited the children - again cause we are really close - they have a special relationship with them -- but if its your cousin's kid, or your friend's kid, or what not - i don't think it is necessary to invite them - again the bride and groom should be allowed to have the kind of wedding they want -- i think a big wedding is a waste of money - use that money as a downpayment on a house instead which lasts years not hours -- but that's not the issue here - the kids eat, take a place at a table, etc. - ie cost more money on an already large bill -- and every one can find a babysitter for a day to go to a wedding childless

    Soup, I don't mean to be pushy but doesn't that free up a spot now? Could I go and be the consoling guy? I do that. I'm still sensitive. Here I am consoling via pony tail.
