    Would you invite an ex to your wedding?

    I guess it depends on the relationship that was had.  I personally don't think its a good idea. My thought is that they are an EX for a reason

      I personally think it's not a good idea as well. But what if it's an ex-wife?

    Sure, why not?  I mean, if I'm secure about loving the man I'm going to marry, I wouldn't mind if any of my ex's were there (except for the one who joined a monastery......)

      Hey definition, thanks for answering. If it's an ex-wife of your fiance? Would you?

      Um maybe not an ex *wife*....too much emotional stuff surrounding that issue, best not to let it interfere with the wedding smile

    I would say it all depends on the situation. If it was on bad terms, then no. If you have kids, then yes. If you don't even talk to them anymore, then no. If you still remain friends, yes.

    You have to think about the situation. How will it affect them and you if they were there? Would either of you feel uncomfortable? Does one of you still have unsettled feelings? Do you have kids that will want them there?
    There really isn't a straight forward answer to this. You just have to think about them and yourself. Would it benefit them or you in any way? Know the feelings between you both. Then, go from there. If you think that you might not want to be there to see them get married again. Then, maybe you should think of them. Give them the courtesy that you would expect.

      By your answer. I can't tell if that was a good or bad wow. Either way I hope my answer helped you.

      Would your future spouse have any say?
      Would you mind if (his) exes came to your wedding?

    I think it totally depends on the situation. First, the kind of terms you separated on, and when. Second, would the ex even want to be there? Even if they wouldn't be uncomfortable, is there any reason they'd want to come celebrate the marriage? If they've remained friends, or at least on civil terms, then they might have a reason to be happy for you and want to celebrate. Personally, I wouldn't (and didn't) invite my ex-husband to my wedding. However, my husband's second wife probably would have gotten an invite if she wanted one; their marriage was annulled out of mutual agreement, and I'm good friends with hubby's son from that marriage. Over the years since they separated they've stayed on civil and respectful terms, and she's been civil to and about me. My husband's first wife, on the other hand, has been spiteful and bitter to him for the last 25 years. In most situations, especially if there's any question, it's probably best not to invite the ex.
