My husband, just wouldn't go.
I don't think it's completey shady. My office is having a christmas party, and spouses/guests are not invited. Employers are not required to provide a party for your spouses or for you that matter.
Quoting twinmommy27:Shady for sure!
Exactly. Sounds like this is one fiance who shouldn't turn into a husband...at least not your husband. Either he's not trust-worthy in which case you wouldn't want to marry him or you're a bit paranoid in which case he wouldn't want to marry you.

My Df's work holiday party is usually for employees and 1 guest each. They like to thank us for supporting our SO's who work for them and put up with them occasionally travelling for work. They do it at a local restaurant and there is amazing food. They probably aren't even having one this year because they have so few employees.
I would just check with him by saying something like "So the party is at 6 on Friday? I have a sitter lined up for the kids." And see what he says.
I think the fact that you are questioning your fiance about something like this is a bigger issue than whether or not his office is allowing guests for the Christmas party.
I don't understand all these responses automatically saying that it's shady and he's lying. It's common practice - especially if it's at a nice place.
Quoting Anonymous:That's actually pretty common practice if the company is paying for food.

My office party is employees only. I'd be pissed if my husband called my office and asked. My Mother's office party is employees only.
