It's about time, although I would be personally be wary of being around women who didn't want me there in the first place. I truly hope that she can find some who will welcome her with open arms.

Good! She should have been welcomed without question. She's a spouse- she belongs there!

Interesting that she was "invited" to something that should have accepted her in the first place.

Glad they finally got over whatever it was in their lives that made the wife feel discriminated against. I too hope that they show open arms and welcome her warmly.
