Wedding invitation - need guidance please
I am in the stage in my wedding plans where I need to think about invitations. I have a cousin that was married for many years and has children. She has been divorced from her husband for over 15 years and has been living with a woman whom we always have known as her best friend (even when she was married). They have been living together, own a home together, do everything together etc. I am quite certain they are gay. I have no issue there, in fact we love her friend as family. They never discuss what their situation truely is. I think they prefer it to be unspoken or perhaps for us to think they are just friends. I would like them both to come to our wedding. My question - how do I address the invitation(s)? Do I send one to my cousin and "guest", or one to my cousin and "friend's formal name", or two separate invitations? I am not sure how to handle this unusual situation. I am grateful for any help.
