  • nope, i would just stop by when it is done and grab my children. If he told you the only reason he was inviting you was the kids i would think it obvious that he really doesnt want you there and it was only for convenience.

  • personally i wouldn't but that's just me. even if we were through i still wouldn't want to see him marry someone else. i think it would be too painful. he should as a family memeber to get the children and then you could pick them up later. JMO

  • My 11 year old has autism, and my ex wanted him in his wedding. I actually offered to go so I could keep an eye on C and he could enjoy his day and not worry about him.

  • Are you on good terms? Do you want to go and wish him well? If not, you can take the kids afterwards if you want to, but your ex can let you know when to come and get them. It doesn't mean you have to go to the whole thing. .

  • I wouldn't go. But if you feel comfortable going then I say go for it, if not then just drop by to pick up the kids afterwards or see if a family member could bring them to you.

  • If he told you that's the only reason I would say no. You are just as capable of arriving there on time to pick them up. It seems a little rude to extend the invitation with a qualifier so I'm guessing from that info that you two are not close enough for you to have a true desire to support him or a desire from him to have you there so you're probably better off not going.

  • It depends on the relationship between the two of you. IF you are considered friends and your current S/O as well as his fiancee doesn't mind, then I see no problem with going.

    But, If he just needs you there so you can get the kids, then I would show up after the wedding was over and pick up the kids.

  • I would not go. I would just pick up the kids at a set time. I would think it would be wierd for everyone involved..
