My brothers and I together own a summer house where we get together every year for a family reunion. Every year one brother invites a friend that no one else likes to one of our barbecues. We have asked him not to, but he says as one of the owners he can invite anyone he wants to.
Queenie, who is right?—Kid sister
Technically your brother is right. However, it would be considerate of him to ask the rest of you whether it is okay for him to invite this friend to family occasions, and if you object, to invite that friend only when the rest of you are not going to be present.
