Dear Rock-A-Holics,
You are cordially invited to the wedding of FRANK and FRANK’S GIRLFRIEND. If you’d like to attend Frank’s bachelor party, please be prepared for bars and strip clubs. It’s that final Guys Night Out that every soon-to-be-married man has to face on his way to the altar.  There will be excessive drinking and lewd behavior. GUARANTEED.
(Sounds like a perfect evening to share with your future father-in-law, right?)
So, here’s the Group Therapy lowdown, in case we aren’t being clear:
Frank is getting married in 3 weeks. As you might expect, he’s going to have a wild night at the bars and strip clubs for his bachelor party.
Frank is definitely looking forward to the debauchery, but he’s starting to think that maybe he should invite his future father-in-law. After all, dad-in-law is a “guy’s guy”, and the two men have formed a close relationship over the last ten years. The old man gave Frank his first job after high school, and his blessing to marry his daughter! Frank considers him a true father figure.
That’s all well and good, but…speaking as a father, I have ZERO desire to be involved with something like that. Not with my son, and not with a future son-in-law. Maybe that’s just me, though.
Is it weird to invite your future father-in-law to your bachelor party? Has anyone ever done that, and lived to tell the tale afterwards? Let’s hear it, folks!

It can be done
Both my father and my father in law attended my bachelor party and I think they were happy to be included. BUT the first part of the event was very low key, pizzas, beer, cruising on a boat around Lake Washington on a warm summer evening... but my father in law is a very smart man and he called a cab for himself and my dad at our first port and graciously bowed out before the true debauchery began. I think if you plan things right you can include your father in law for part of the festivities but work with him to have an escape before anything happens that might make him or the groom uncomfortable. Have fun!!!
