DEAR ABBY: My son’s fiancee has just informed me that I need to send her my guest list for the wedding, and she will let me know to whom she will send invitations.
When I asked if she meant that there was a limited number of guests, she said no, but she didn’t want people there who didn’t mean anything to her.
She’s from the East Coast, and my son met her in college in another state, so she doesn’t know many of our family members or friends. How do I respond to this? Thank you.
DEAR MOTHER: It appears your son’s fiancee has “forgotten” that after marriage there are two sides to the family.
