Mariella Frostrup says a woman irritated her boyfried has been excluded from a family wedding must accept that decision or decline the invitation
The dilemma My cousin and I were extremely close growing up as neither of us had brothers or sisters. We spent summer holidays together and went away abroad together with our families, too.
As we’ve grown older, we have drifted apart and she has now started a family of her own. Next spring she is getting married to her partner of seven years. She informed me that my partner, and the partners of our other cousins (of which there are many – our mothers come from a family of six), would not be invited to the wedding.
