 I can totally see where you are coming from!! The blame should not be put on a child who wouldn’t, at 3 years old, called their father’s family. If it had started when you were a teenager I would say that, even though the parent is the one who should be putting forth the effort in most situations, you should have called. But since it was that way since you weren’t even in school something like that can’t just be undone by a call once you’d grown up.

 
I’m sorry that you’re going through this, with all of the wedding stress that you already have 3 months out this shouldn’t be added!

I’m sorry he would call and present such a question to you. The point is, you made the cordial gesture of inviting him, and he should be thankful for that courtesy alone. It is as though he was looking for an excuse not to come, and now he can “blame” you for it instead of be accountable for his actions in the past, or lack thereof. And that moment when your mother’s partner was getting measured? Sheesh! I’m sure he can handle wearing something perfectly tailored to his body for a few hours. 😉 Chin up, m’dear. Try to take such moments with some humor, wear your emotional armor and have their odd behavior bounce off. Surround yourself with supportive and good people.
