OK, guys, I have a question. One which seems simple to me, but I would like some other viewpoints on it.
My son came to live with my current wife and I when he was 14. My wife can't have kids, so she was elated to have one in the home.
However, he didn't stay long. He wanted to go back to the people who raised him, my brother and his wife. I saw this coming. I knew he would be homesick for the only parents he ever knew. He threatened suicide and I didn't want to risk whether or not he was serious, so he went back to his "parents". He has always been somewhat of a problem child. This hurt my wife badly, she took it as rejection and now can't stand my son.
FFWD to present day. My son is now 17. He wants to come spend the weekend. My wife hates the idea and constantly reminds me of how much she detests him.
He is my son, after all, and she hurts me by acting the way she does.
Do I allow my wife to ban my child from coming here?
Is it right for her to say hurtful things to me about my son when I already know how she feels?
