DEARSUGAR NEEDS YOUR HELP: My Husband Doesn't Want Me To Attend My Ex's Wedding

DEARSUGAR and Torn Torrance need your help. Her husband won't go with her to her ex's wedding and doesn't want her to go either. He wants to put an end to this relationship once and for all. What should she do?

Dear Sugar
I was invited to my ex-boyfriend's wedding and my husband doesn't want me to go. My ex and I dated for five years and even though we broke up three and a half years ago, he thinks that our relationship is silly and it bothers him that we are still friendly and are involved in each other's lives.

In his opinion, he feels that not going to the wedding is the perfect way to close the chapter on this relationship for good. He's not opposed to sending a card and a small gift with the regretful R.S.V.P., but he definitely won't go with me. He feels that now that we are both married the friendship borders on disrespectful.

He also thinks that it makes my ex's fiancee just as uncomfortable as it makes him. What should I do? Should I respect my husband, send a nice gift and respectfully decline the invitation? Or should I go stag because I still value our friendship and there will be old time mutual friends of ours attending that I am looking forward to seeing? Torn Torrance
