Wordpress URL Help

I have a website built with Wordpress.
There is a function within the site for users to invite new users. They receive an email with a link like so:
http://www.MYSITE.org/register/?x=12&y=2
"Register" is a page, but the "?x=12&y=2" is not.  It is there to track who invited them to join.

Since it is not a wordpress page, it sends you to the home page.  How can I make it so Wordpress does not look at that and so it will work?

Maybe look at the submit button?  The x=&y= is a signature of using an image for the submit control instead of using a control of type="submit"

Is the link always the same or is it unique for each invite? If it's the same, you can use something like Pretty links plugin to link it to the register page so they'll be taken there and not the homepage.
