I can't really say anything more than the ladies on here have already said... I am so sorry you are going through this!!!!
Take care of yourself and KNOW that you are and deserve the best. Believe in yourself and don't let anyone ever tell you that you aren't good enough or embarass them.

As soon as I said I could he stumbled around and said he would have to call me back. When he did he said sorry he was mistaken, I was no longer invited. Each time it always is like this. I was hurt because a few months ago he said he was embarrassed of me. When we decided to get married he said things would be different, but there not. When he uninvited me my feelings were hurt. He then told me I wasn't understanding and he didn't want to marry someone like me. I'm crushed. I don't even know what to say. I'm embarrassed to tell the people close to me. Thank you so much for listening. We really do (as far as I knew) had a great relationship. I just don't know what to do now...I'm so hurt
Something is striking me in the post above : if you were in a "great relationship", as you said you thought, what is it that needed to be "changed" after you get married ?
It sounds to me that he has been already doing/saying things that were hurting you in the past, and that maybe you did not want to notice/consider because you are so attached to your relationship with him.
You also say you don't know what to do without him. I think he knows it and I think this is where something is not going well in here - he's taking advantage of it. When they have a person that is dependable on them, certain men like to take advantage of the situation. He likes to have you at home and nowhere else so that he can be free of what he's doing outside ? Telling you he's "embarassed of you" and he "does not want to marry somebody like you" so that you can feel dimished and don't even try and fight...
Another thing that makes me think this is the way it is, is that he says he does not want to marry someone like you, but then - what does he want ? Is he waiting for "the one" to show up and he will leave you and the kids altogether ?
Well, if the answer is yes, then YOU should NOT want to marry him and grab your kids and go !
If the answer is no, then he is manipulating you... to keep you under his control ? To keep you from interefering with something else ? I don't have these answers.
I'm very sorry to write all this. Both answers are ugly and I realize this... In both cases we have a guy that has children with you but thinks you're not "worth marrying" or even doing things with...This is unacceptable.
Sometimes, it takes a lot of courage to face the reality of the situation. Specially if you have been in a relationship with a man that diminishes you - your moral, your state of mind can be very low. Your objectivity can be hindered. You may be in a situation where you actually believe you're not worth a lot...
The good news is, if we are in the second option, and if you want to try and save this relationship, that things can still change, but the change has to come primarily from you, not him. Obviously, he has issues, but you're not going to convince him of that... On the other hand, you have to gain self-confidence. You have to believe, genuinely, that you deserve respect, love, and that you can live without him, that you're not dependable. Everybody deserves respect and love, and on this I will agree with Marie-Sam - no man can tell you that you embarass him. But you have to believe it and act as such.
If he thinks that he can tell you that he's embarassed with you, that he can tell you you're not the kind of person he wants to marry, and that you'll just eat it up and nothing happens, he'll just think he can lack of respect for you all along and things are not going to get any better. You have to show him this is not that way. But the first person that needs to respect you is yourself. You owe it to yourself.
I think counselling would help you a lot in this very long and difficult path of re-finding yourself and re-discovering how wonderful a person you are. After doing this, you will probably know what to do better than any of us.
This is probably hard to read and you may not agree with everything, but you should think about it...
