I agree--no need to say anything. I suspect that in a situation like celebrating a parent's new marriage that anything positive the child would say could feel like a criticism of the other parent. Even if true, it could be hard to say publicly.

Also, I dislike the word for "confront" in almost all situations that involve people. Going into a situation with the idea of confronting it tends to turn a conversation into an argument.

I'm sorry that your sons no longer have a relationship. Perhaps with time, maturity, and some mental health care things will improve. There's hope--I can hear that you love them both.
