"Most rude and hurtful," Aunt Edith scrawled across the invitation sent back in the mail.

She added her partner's name 'Uncle Danny' and wrote a cross alongside 'Declines with regret'.


Before adding: "Family shouldn't separate family. You shouldn't have sent one at all."

The bride did add that 'Uncle Danny' wasn't hugely popular among the rest of the family and she had only met him a few times.

Plenty of people agreed with the bride's right to invite who she wanted to, with one person telling the aunt to "harden up".

"That‘s a quick way to quit being invited to family gatherings ever again," one person wrote.

There were a few who thought the couple were actually rude for not inviting the partner, given they had been a couple for two years.

"It's possible to think the couple was rude for not inviting a guest's long-term partner while also thinking the aunt's reaction was over the top," was one response.

While others agree with that point, though stressed Covid changed the situation.

"I think Covid makes a very big difference though. Without Covid, you should invite partners. With Covid, guests lists are very restricted," one person wrote.
