You did the right thing.

I think this is a pain in the ass, but you did the right thing. Either he’ll get it one day, or he won’t.

No sense in getting worked up – you know how he is. He likely won’t change. Not much you can do except politely let them know you can’t make it (like you did).

If this is how he is, then this is how he is lol. There’s not much you can do about his behavior besides not giving into it and not letting it get to you. 

What you did was great: you politely told his wife that you wouldn’t be able to make it, and that you hope they have a good time. That’s all you need to do. Any time he behaves this way, just do what you did this time. Say politely whether you can or can’t make it. 

Just like you said, he can’t tell you where to go. Don’t let him get to you.
