Good to know where I stand

I know this is going to sound really petty:

My SIL is getting married in May. She just sent out the wedding announcements and on the envelope, it was only addressed to DW, not both of us. Now I tried to give my SIL the benefit of the doubt that maybe she wasn't taught how to properly address an envelope. But DW called her cousin, also married, and SIL addressed it to her and her DH.

Now it is no secret I am not liked by DW's family at all, but have the decency and respect for your sister to at least acknowledge her marriage and life choices.

And tough spot for your DW to be put in.

Your SIL sounds like she has a hard heart.

Unless you are a total jerk, and I don't think you are, your SIL is making a big mistake. This kind of pettiness will cause more hurt in her life then she even knows.

That said, your wife should be direct with her sister. She may have mindlessly written her sister's name out of habit not realizing she left you name off, especially if you are not in her life much. If your wife would speak to her sister directly she would have to offer and explanation. You deserve that much.

Geez, some people are just rude. Good of bad relationship with you aside, she us putting your wife in a tough position. If my sis did that I would be tempted to not attend the wedding. But that is me.

Sorry you and your wife are dealing with this. This is nothing more than bullying and it's childish behavior.

Sending an announcement now??? I know people send a 'save the date' card and then the wedding invitation much closer to the actual wedding. A lot can happen in 6 months...people would forget, loose the invite, couple break up etc.
Family relationships can be difficult...

Are you invited? Or is this just a passive aggressive move on her part? I would have your wife ask if you are invited and tell her sister that she won’t attend if you are not.
