My son and his fiance have a wedding web page. On it they list me (real mother) and his step-mother (who sees him once a year on Thanksgiving) as 'Co-Mothers'. I'm upset about it. Should I be?Answer Question

I think he is doing what he thinks is respectful to both of you and no I wouldn't be upset about it. Now, I had a friend who's dd just got married and her dd didn't even acknowledge her she only address the step mom in all speeches it was despicable.
But like I said I think kids have a hard time when they have to do their invites to their weddings when there are "steps" involved they do the best they can so I would just let it be. I don't think he was doing it out of disrespect. My dd also has a step family and I know that I will be ok with what she decides for her wording of her wedding invites.

It's THEIR wedding and maybe HE feels like his step-mother is like a mother to him and HE wanted to acknowledge that TO HIM both you and she have had a hand in making him the man he is today. YOU don't have a say in it and if you are upset that is YOUR issue. It's HIS wedding.
REally she sees him once a year, how much did she have to do with his BECOMING the man he is today. It was probably his DAD wanting the acknowldgement of his current wife.
