My fiance and I are getting married in June and we have a 16 month old son. Since he's been born, I've been trying to get something legally down on paper about who would get custody if me and my fiance were to die. Obviously he would get custody if it was just me, but if it was BOTH of us, I think my parents should get custody. My mother and father are both 10 years younger than my in-laws, in better health, go to church every Sunday, and would make sure my son was raised in a good, healthy environment. However my fiance thinks HIS parents should get our son. Mind you my FIL has had 2 strokes already, my MIL has some heart/lung issues. They live in Florida (we live in Indiana) for half the year. They haven't been to church in 15+ years. All their children, my fiance included, have gotten DUIs and have been arrested. And when we were in high school, they allowed us to drink and smoke pot at their house. That is not the home I would want our son to grow up in. My fiance is not thinking logically...he is just thinking he wants his parents because they are his parents...not who would be the better choice. So my question is, if I got a form written up saying my son goes to MY parents and my fiance refused to sign it...once we are married, would it still count even though my husband would be refusing to agree?

Since this is posted in religion. Do you have God parents for the child? If so, would you trust them in raising your child in that situation. Maybe you should appoint someone that you do trust as God parents and let him participate in that decision and then its a good compromise.
