Tempted to suggest you send a reply to "Mother-in-law and Father-in=-Law", saying that "Partner" would love to attend, as does "Son".
It's not wrong for you to feel like not attending ; but don't make it a test of his love as to whether or not he goes --- why let them win, as they presumably wanted to create friction between you. Think about both going, so as to disappoint them, and disappoint them still more by being marvellously warm and friendly. Then, instead of them being able to mutter to friends about his "partner", let their friends comment on how marvellous you are
