I was talking to DS18 today about SO moving in with us in a couple of weeks, and the talk went in the direction of step-siblings and step-parents because I asked my son how he'd feel about meeting SO's adult children at some point.
And DS tells me that he only recently found out he has a 14 year old step-nephew. Wifetress's son got a girl pregnant when he was a teenager, and never told anyone until a couple of months ago.
I get that teens do stupid things, like not using birth control. I get that as a teen, it would be incredibly hard to go to your parents and tell them how badly you screwed up.
But damn, how do you not admit it until 14 years later? How in the hell do you let a child you created not exist to the rest of your family? And seriously, wtf kind of parent (wifetress) raises their child to be someone who could do that to their own child? I didn't think my opinion of her could sink any lower, and yet...wow, I just can't imagine how fucked up this family truly is.
This poor step-nephew kid. How incredibly painful this must be for him, to see what kind of sperm donor he had. I hope he runs like hell, and never looks back, right after his mom sues sperm donor for 14 years of back child support.
And this in no way diminishes the compassion I feel for this kid, but hell yeah, I'm gloating to myself that ex is stuck with wifetress and her ongoing family drama, while I'm getting ready to start a whole new, wonderful chapter of my life with my SO.
