His Wife Cheated With His Brother and Had a Son, but When He Let the Boy Move In, His Own Kids Got Mad

A man recently asked for some advice after he let his nephew move in with him even though his kids disapproved. Here’s what happened.

They had two kids together

A man and his ex-wife had two children together: Jamie, who was 24, and Mia, who was 22.

They were divorced a long time ago

The man’s marriage broke up when Mia was still in diapers, and it fell apart for a very good reason.

She had an affair

The man’s wife had been having an affair, and when Mia was still just a baby, she got pregnant again, only this time it was the other man’s.

The father was a shock

If that wasn’t bad enough, the father turned out to be the man’s very own brother.

They got together

After the divorce, the man’s ex-wife and his brother made a go of it, but when the baby (Caleb, now 20) was born, the brother decided it was too much hard work and left.

He never saw his son

The man’s brother moved to another state, and didn’t make any contact with his son or any of his family.

They shared custody

The man and his ex-wife had joint custody of Jamie and Mia, and although that worked fine when the kids were little, things changed as they got older.

The man said, “They gradually chose to spend more and more time at my home when they became teenagers, as they felt that their mom liked Caleb better than them.”

Lockdown affected everyone differently, but for the man’s ex-wife, it seemed to change her completely.

The man said, “She rededicated her life to Christ and joined a very cult-like online church.”

He was outed

Someone from Caleb’s college recently accidentally outed him as gay to his family, and, due at least in part to her new church, his mother disowned him. She told him he had a week to pack and leave her house.

He had a spare room

Jamie and Mia had moved out, so there was a spare room at the man’s house. He asked Caleb, whom he’d always referred to as his nephew regardless, if he wanted to use it for a while.

He wouldn’t have to pay

The man said, “I told him that he’s welcome to stay with me for free so that he can finish college; there’s no way I could watch a family member become homeless without trying to help them.”

The kids were upset

Caleb was grateful for the offer, and the man liked having him around; he’d been quite lonely after his kids moved out. But Jamie and Mia were not happy.

They said he could have gone elsewhere

They told their father that Caleb could have stayed with other family members, and they couldn’t believe he’d taken him in when he knew they didn’t like him because of their mom’s favoritism. Jamie even said he wouldn’t let the man see his grandchild until Caleb left.

Was he wrong?

Was the man wrong to have offered Caleb somewhere to stay, or was he doing the right thing despite his kids’ feelings?

The internet responded

One person said, “What you did is way more ‘Christian’ than your ex.”

Another person commented, “Your children’s anger is misplaced. They shouldn’t be taking this out on Caleb.”
