Etiquette on Couple Separating Right Before Invitations

Saved Save

Okay so my FH is friends with a guy and his wife. We've gone on vacations and stuff with them and they've been great to know. We sent out the save the dates to them in January. ... Well fast forward to last month when they abruptly separated. The guy is now dating someone married and also separated. FH is definitely more friends with the guy. So for his invitation what do we do? We obviously can't invite his wife, but it really bothers me to give him a plus one and have him bring his married mistress to our wedding because I liked his wife and it feels wrong since everyone's still married. Can we get away with just sending him an invitation with no plus one? What to do?

    I would just send him an invite for 1 person, no plus one.

    This is my preferred option and what I am leaning toward!

    Yes, he's separated from his wife, so technically "single" which means it's up to you and FH to decide if he gets a plus one. I wouldn't give him one, as that would be encouraging him to bring his "married mistress" and I'm sure nobody wants to see that.

    Yes, just invite the "single" guy, no plus one. If he would be dramatic about it, that's his prerogative! It's your day and it should be drama free!
