A mother who forgave her husband’s infidelity has shared that her husband’s child with his mistress will spend Christmas with them but she doesn’t like the idea.
She took to Reddit and explained: “My husband has a child from an affair he had a couple years ago. I forgave my husband but I can not force myself to see his son as my stepson.
“The custody arrangement is that my husband has him every other week, Christmas and most Christmas vacation this year, falls on the days that he has him.”
She continued: “I have an annual trip that me and few of the other housewives put together for all of families.
“His ex-mistress is refusing to take him for just this week I told her she’s being selfish and that she should want to spend Christmas with her son she said that so should my husband.
“My husband agreed with me so we decided we would drop him and his presents off to my MIL.”
The mother said that her husband’s former mistress was left outraged and told them that they were being selfish.
“I told her she’s the last one to be talking about being selfish and she has so control over what my husband does with the child during the time he has custody of him.
“My oldest daughter (18) told me she agrees with her and that there’s no reason why [the baby’s] being punished for their affair. I told her to stay in a child’s place and that if she keeps this up she’ll be joining him.”
Thousands of people responded to her post, with many saying that the wife was in the wrong.
“The child is innocent, your husband is the one you should be angry with,” one person commented.
“If you can’t handle being around the child, you haven’t forgiven your husband. Instead, you using that child as a target for your anger instead of the man who cheated on you,” another wrote.
“Whether you recognize it or not, that poor child is literally unwanted by either parent over Christmas. That’s absolutely heartbreaking. You may be angry over how this child came into the world – justifiably so – but he is still your husband’s child,” a third said.
