She Needed Her Ex-Husband to Look After Their Two Children for A While, but Her Former Stepson Refused to Move His Family Out to Make Room

A woman recently went online to ask if she’d been wrong to inadvertently cause a major falling out between her ex-husband and his adult son from his first marriage. Here’s her story.

They married and had children

“Backstory first: me and my ex met back in 2005. He had a son from a previous marriage who was 11 at the time. We got married and had our first child together in 2007. We had another in 2010.”

The woman explained that they’d attempted to raise all three under the same roof but that co-parenting with her stepson’s mother had been difficult (he spent 90% of his time staying with his dad and the woman).

In 2014, the woman’s stepson, who was now 20, moved out and went to live with his mom full-time.

In 2020, the woman and her husband divorced. She kept the house, and they had joint custody of their two children.

The following year, the woman decided to move. Her ex had been staying with his son, and she offered him the chance to move back into their marital home to make life easier for all concerned. He took her up on the offer.

Four months after the woman moved out, her ex’s son moved in with her ex, bringing along his girlfriend and their two young children. The woman’s two kids weren’t spending a lot of time there, so her former stepson and his family moved into their bedrooms

Two years later, they were still there. The woman’s ex says he’s letting them stay there while they save to get their own place.

Unfortunately, the woman received some bad news and needed her ex to have their children stay with him for a few months. This meant that her ex’s son and his family had to move out.

They were given plenty of notice, and her ex’s son made vague plans for them to stay with his girlfriend’s family.

It was three days before the woman’s kids were due to go live with their dad, but his son had suddenly gotten angry about the whole situation and was claiming that his family had nowhere to go. As a result, he and his dad had fallen out badly.

The woman wondered if she was to blame for the entire situation. She asked the internet what it thought.

The internet backed the woman. “There is a whole difference between lending your home and giving sufficient notice and throwing people out for profit or just after a fight,” said one. “He is a father of two; he can’t simply expect unlimited free housing.”

“How could you possibly be wrong?” exclaimed another. “You let your husband use the house for your kids, but he didn’t; he moved his own kid and family in so your kids couldn’t actually spend weekends with their dad for over two years. If you can’t take care of your kids right now, the dad has to step up. This isn’t about you at all.”
