 Okay, so... I've been planning this party/bonfire thing for about a month now with mainly just my friends and their SO's. My BFF's DH is his BFF. The rest are 3 other girls and their SO's, and one guy friend and HIS GF.

Anyway, recently we found out that DS has a Cub Scout camping trip which is ALL weekend, including the Friday of the party. He was fine with it, up until yesterday. Then he threw a big fit, saying that I said it was going to originally be a girls night (which I NEVER said) and that I "lied" to him, etc.

I don't know what his deal is. I offered to turn it into girls night, or cancel altogether, but neither of those options are what he wants. What is his deal? He won't talk to me about it, but we're apparently now having a HUGE fight over it. He's never been like this, and he goes out ALL the time (and I don't).

i'd either keep it going or turn it into a girls night- that would be fun! i'm sure either way you'll have a good time.

 I don't think it is your fault...but I think you should make it a girls night. That is what I would do. Simply because that gives him no reason to be uncomfortable or feel left out...or whatever his problem is.

I would carry on as planned, my DH always ends up enjoying himself. After all the fits, fighting and avoiding, the fucker has a great time. So I keep a level head by remembering this lol

 Yep. One adult has to chaperone per child. Neither of us necessarily WANT to go... But if I can send my son with the parents of his best friend, maybe DH can come to the party, and DS can go to his campout, and I can have my party, and we can ALL be happy!

Now, that's IF the parent would want to take responsibility of DS for a weekend, and then IF the Cub Scout leader will allow this (which should be fine).

 We were originally both going to be home for the bonfire. I would rather just call it off than postpone it. It took a TON of planning and coordinating everyone's schedules to make this work, so it would be nearly impossible to do again. Although even if I continue with it, he's sucking all the fun out of it  :-(
