DEAR DEIDRE: MY son-in-law is 35 and is getting re-married to a lovely girl but he hasn’t invited us to the wedding.
My daughter was 31 when she lost her battle with breast cancer and left her husband and two little girls behind.
We have been through such a sad time as a family but I’ve always been there for my son-in-law.
I found it hard when he started dating again but I knew he had to think about his daughters and their future, so I tried to accept his choice.
I assumed me and my husband would receive an invitation to the wedding ceremony but we’ve just been invited to the evening.
We would have loved to be included in their special day and see the girls in their bridesmaid dresses, but I hear it is just “close family and friends” invited. I thought we were family!
DEIDRE SAYS: It feels like a double blow after losing your daughter but they may not be able to afford lots of guests.
Don’t brood but invite your son-in-law and his new wife and the girls over for a meal at your home.
They will all know you still want to be involved with your granddaughters.
