DEAR ABBY: I recently became engaged to marry for the second time. I am still close to my former husband's parents and would like to invite them to my wedding. I think they would be hurt if I didn't. My fiance has no problem with their attendance.
A few people have said that it would be ridiculous and improper to invite them to the wedding and reception. A friend suggested that with a sticky situation like this, I should ask you what to do. -- BRIDE IN MANCHESTER, N.H.
DEAR BRIDE: Since your fiance is comfortable with your inviting your former in-laws to your wedding, and you sincerely want them to attend, invite them. Although it is somewhat unusual for a former daughter-in-law to remain so close to her in-laws, it is a testimony to the respect and affection you have maintained for each other in spite of the marital problems you had with their son.
