What the girlfriend said made things awkward

DEAR ABBY: I started dating a guy two months ago. It goes very well. I think we’re both on the same page about how involved we are in the relationship.

Jeanne Phillips (Dear Abby)My brother and sister-in-law are having an informal wedding reception next month here in my town, because they originally had an impromptu wedding. It’s supposed to be very casual.

This guy met my sister-in-law, and right in front of him he mentioned that I can bring a guest. I laughed a bit at that point. It’s not that I don’t want him there, I’m just wondering if it’s too early to invite him to an event where my whole family will be and if it seems like I’m rushing the relationship.

Should I tell her that she can come or is it too soon?
