Q.

One of my very old office colleague visited me & gave an invitation card for the marriage of his daughter. Later I came to know that after two days of his daughter's marriage, his son's marriage is also due, for which he has not invited me. Even he didn't disclose it to me.
Should I attend the marriage or avoid it?

When we receive invitations of marriage from close friends and from our colleagues ( need not necessarily to oblige old colleagues unless they are close to you), it is customary to attend such marriages. In this case, probably, your old colleague may not be as close as he to disclose his well beings fact of which can be made out in his not disclosing the marriage of his son.

The invitation should be respected and attended sir since your colleague remembers you, the reason for him not to say anything about his son's marriage is best known to him so please don't bear anything against that

Yes the daughter needs more blessings and support to the father ; the system of invitation has perhaps come into vogue with a view to shoulder the responsibility which any father is not able to bear; the society extended help ... In olden days, there were not cooks, ladies of relatives cooked, there were not servants who could serve meals to the marriage party coming from out side. the boys of relatives attended to their needs........ so, the daughter's marriage was supposed to be a great work.

As regards the behaviour of the colleague, it is astonishing and not commendable. Perhaps . he is also not very serious about taking people with him to the place of the bride Only selected persons are invited to accompany.

As per me you should attend his daughters marriage as he is your old friend and remebered you to invite. He may want to inform when you come to his daughters marriage he will give the invitation for his sons. Don't take it otherwise and attend the marriage and if he invites for his son's marriage otherwise you forget this, Then it left to your decision.

Probably he forgot it with so many invitations to many different people, but it would not be appropriate for you to go or ask if you have not been invited. You can always feign ignorance about his son's marriage, if he ever asks about you not coming. If he is a good and close friend, you can always feel free to ask him if he has forgot to invite you!

You must attain the marriage, may be for his son's marriage he has his limitations in inviting guests, due to some reasons, (as per bride's side some limitations )
