Has anyone ever had their DH, bf, DF, etc, push ur child away & favor their other child, ur step kid? I had this happen with our DS & i just never understood why. My bf wanted to have a baby with me a year into our relationship & he hoped for a boy! He had a daughter from a previous relationship. Well i did get pregnant after much coaxing & we were blessed with a boy! But from the moment i was pregnant he immediately showed favoritsm for his daughter & from that point on it continued. He even said he didnt love our DS when he was born. :( That he had a bond with his daughter & didnt feel any bond yet with DS. It pretty much crushed me inside & i never knew this was even possible. I am just wondering if I am alone or has anyone else experienced this & how did u handle it? As u can imagine it ruined any relationship between me & SD which had been an amazing one! I resent him and SD tons! I never gave him a reason to do this.Answer Question

Personally, I wouldn't be able to handle that. If I knew that my husband didn't love my (his own) son, I'd pack up and leave. His favoritism is going to SEVERELY affect your son as he gets older. I would sit your husband down and tell him flat out that his behaviour is unacceptable. Tell him that you can't force him to love his own child, but that doesn't mean that you have to stay and put up with it either. Ask him if he even wants visitation when you leave and take it from there. I'd also look into getting your son some counseling because this will be a problem for him as he gets older no matter what happens. Knowing that your father doesn't love or want you is traumatizing.
