No I dont expect them to be invited but our only babysitter is literally my mum, thats it. So if she cant babysit, we just dont go.
What does pi$$ me off is when someone specifies no children and then get angry at us when we cannot make it.

Yes in my circles it would be really strange for them not to be invited.

I don't understand why people get offended. It's the organisers choice as to who they invite and if they don't want children so be it. It's their choice not to have children there.. it's your choice whether you attend or not.
For me it would depend entirely on the situation but for the most part if my kids weren't invited I wouldn't attend. I wouldn't be offended though. The only thing that would make me mad is if I said I wasn't going because I wanted to be with my children and they got angry at me.

Yes- if they are being hosted by immediate family members. I am feeling very passionate about this one at the moment! And no I am not attending, apart from the principal of the whole thing the logistics of it are impossible. It is an interstate wedding and all family is invited. Having strangers look after my children is not an option and something I would feel comfortable with. I am very offended but there are deeper issues with brother and SIL.
No if it's just a friend or something.

Yes, if we can't get my parents to babysit (the only people we'd leave DS with).

It really depends on each individual event. It's up to the host and I work around that.mif it's child-free then that's fine (and kinda nice) and if it's children included then that's great too! I like parties full stop

No no and no.
I think its a very entitled opinion to think your children will be or should be invited because you are.
Not everyone likes children and yeah they can be a giant PITA whether you think they are or not.
