I know you’ve already talked to him, but I think you need to really sit down with him and have an adult conversation. Tell him you understand it’s hard for him to see your mom with her new husband, etc, etc and you are trying to do your best to make everyone happy. It is important to you that everyone be included and you’d like him to be there, but if he can’t be civil and act the way a father should, maybe it would be best if he didn’t come. Something along those lines… I know it’s harsh, but it’s been 11 years and he’s a grown man!

My step-mother is acting similarly (wants to be treated the same as my mom, even though I barely know the woman) and I’ve basically told her either come and shut up or don’t come at all.

@BambeeBliss: what she said. She put it a lot nicer than I could have
