comment How to explain to friends/family that one will not attend an intermarriage
Sending a gift or even offering congratulations is unacceptable. I agree that you should try to give minimum offense, but you simply cannot in any way signal acceptance, encouragement or happiness with the act. Intermarriage is a profound rejection of Judaism, and while it is not done with any malice towards our G-d and religion it's simply not okay, and you cannot intimate that it is. After the fact, you should maintain relations with the couple as if you never noticed they got married, and similarly ignore anniversaries.
