Weddings can cause sticky family situations rise to the surface. Already-difficult tasks like table assignments are complicated by in-laws, exes, and step-relatives. Our wedding etiquette experts are here to answer your guest list questions in our daily post.

The reason: Inviting a former spouse who no longer feels close to your family will leave him with two fairly awkward choices—not attending and looking bitter, or attending and feeling uncomfortable.
