  • they will most likely ignore each other, but if they start causing trouble you could pull them aside and tell them to grow up or leave ( might want to word it nicer than that. maybe not....whatever gets the message through lol)

  • My theory is "invite everyone and let them worry about their own grudges." I can't be bothered to keep up with other people's squabbles.

  • Ask them to respect you and your wishes to act like adults for a day if they do not you will ask them to leave!

  • that could be hard..with my mom and my step ads family the two mainly stayed in seperate rooms..or wen they were in the same room ignored eachother or the most part unless something as said it was normally a short sarcastic answer..

    alot of times if theres many people there will be conversations going on all over you may not have to worry if anything have them sit far apart or something speak to them one on one and ask them to please keep the peace as well.

  • I don't have this problem

  • Their squabbling and bickering shouldn't ruin other people's day. They should be the only ones to have to deal with their issues. Alternate inviting them if they can't act in a mature, civil manner. When they ask why tell them the truth. You don't like dealing with it all.

  • I have my own children to worry about. Not keeping adults away from one another....they should avoid one another and be respectful of everyone else.

  • In a private manner remind them separately that they are in your home and to keep it respectful towards each other until they leave. If there is any scene you will ask them to leave.
