    ..put divorced parents on the same line??

    The bold names are FI's biological parents. They are both divorced and re-married, but FI only wants to include their names(not their spouses) on the invite. Can I put them on the same line??

    Example:

    Mr. and Mrs. Paul H****
    invite you to share in their joy
    at the marriage of their daughter
    Jacquelyn Carol H****
    Jared Joseph M****
    son of Mr. John M****and Mrs. Ann R***


    TIA!

      I am not sure etiquette wise, but I would try not to do that. Are you having space issues? I don't think I would do it that way, but my parents are together, so I might not be the best person to anser.

      Mr. and Mrs. Paul H****
      invite you to share in their joy
      at the marriage of their daughter
      Jacquelyn Carol H****
      Jared Joseph M****
      son of Mr. John M****
      and Mrs. Ann R***

          Then again, are they contributing financially? How would his parents feel to have their spouses left out? I dont know how that works! Tough call.

            I think it's okay as long as their names are correct. And I love your pictures! Looks like a J. Crew ad!

              I don't know what the "rule" is, but I just got an invitation like this in the mail for my friends wedding and it something that I noticed. Her FI's parents are divorced and she put them on the same line, so I guess it can be done!

                I dont see anything wrong with that. They are his parents and its not like people dont know they are remarried. I would just put them on the same line.

                  We personally put Aaron's parent's on separate lines since they're no longer together. Chances are no one will notice, but we did anyways.

                      When one of my children gets married I fully expect for my children to put both me and their father on the same line, minus their step parents. If my children's father was not as important in their lives then maybe I would feel differently, but we are mom and dad and that is the bottom line.
