Re: Stingiest thing you've seen someone do

I consider myself lucky that I got a great life lesson at 18 as a freshman. A classmate asked 20+ people if they wanted to go to lunch on parents visiting day. Of course I thought her folks were going to pay but at the end of the meal her dad took out a pencil and figured out what everybody's share was down to the penny and I had to come up w/ something like $2.89. Exactly.

I remember to this day what I thought: This guy is so ****ed up he just gave me 11 cents change. I will never be like him.

I'm sure if you asked the bride and groom they would say that your wife was invited to the wedding...You probably didn't get an invitation to the wedding since you are in the party, but clearly it is implied that she is invited to that.

Under normal circumstances it is implied that she is invited to the rehearsal dinner too. In this case she was explicitly not invited which is weird and pretty stupid but you just suck it up and go anyways. Your wife has no reason to be mad at you if you go on your own.

If I was the one in the wedding party my sig-other would be completely cool with me going to the dinner. Similarly, if my sig-other was in the wedding party and I wasn't invited to the dinner I would also be completely cool with it.
I think the issue is that this dinner is really no different than any other sort of dinner party. If a spouse is invited, it's understood that the other half is also invited. There are exception like bridal showers, bachelor parties or even guys/girls nite out. I don't think this is one of those exceptions.

Now of course she could have opted out and not go, but not to be included in the invite to start with is not rite imo.

Re: Stingiest thing you've seen someone do

King,
You're clearly the douche in that story. Weddings are really stressful and expensive and there are usually lots of arguments about money/who's coming/etc between bride/groom/families. Starting an argument over something really petty like whether your wife gets to go to dinner with them one night is really douchey.

This is beyond stingy, it's theft.

This is only stingy if he won't share it with someone.
