My sister in law was dating this jerk for 3 years. They were engaged for 6 months before she learned he was cheating on her. My husband and I went to school with this guy. I didn't like him one bit in high school. He was even worse after high school and when he was trying to weasel his way into the family. I made it VERY clear I did not like him (my husband hated him but was nice because he's just that kind of person). The sister in laws idiot was... a wannabe. He was constantly in things he shouldnt have been. Treated the animals like the greatest thing on the planet when my inlaws were around. He made the mistake of kicking Zena one time and I went after him. The inlaws were supposed to visit for Christmas one year and the sister in law invited the idiot. I told my husband to pass on the message that THEY were welcome to come but the idiot was not welcome and would be expected to sit outside on the porch with duct tape over his mouth for the duration of the visit. They thought I was kidding. They were staying at our house. I wouldn't let him in the door. My house, my rules. My husband at least offered him a tent and a sleeping bag to sleep in the backyard. I wouldn't have been so generous, especially after the kicking my dog incident.
My point is, its YOUR decision who comes into your house and who doesn't. Anyone who doesn't like it will have to deal or the celebration can be held elsewhere. I made it very clear I would make it a very miserable experience for everyone involved if that guy set even a toe in my house. I had made it clear he wasn't liked and it was made clear he would not be welcome. They learned to listen a lot better to house wishes after that weekend.
