With so little information I can only give you my instant response to your inquiry.

You and the rest of your family and friends want to exclude your uncle's partner of 25 years from your social gathering because you don't like her, for whatever reasons. Inviting your uncle without his chosen mate is rude and unkind, therefore very poor manners. You may have your party without them both in attendance but you should not invite only the uncle, if you wish to follow the practical rules of accepted adult behavior. It is never good manners to purposely hurt another's feelings, no matter what the circumstances may be.
