What is unacceptable, are there guidelines? Should the childrens feelings be taken into consideration?
if the father's young wife is embarrassing to his son b/c of the 12 year age difference? Its not as if I am 19, I am 27, I do not dress provocatively, i just wear jeans and t shirts, so how is that not dressing my age? I am not a new wife, we have been married for 7 years, he didnt start getting embarrassed until he started looking older. And I still look the same.
my husband is only 8 years older, he started having children young. The older kids are not embarrassed, just the youngest.

I think he is entitled to his feelings. He had no say in his parents splitting and no say in his dad remarrying. Parents do have to think about their kids when they remarry it is their own life to live but the choices they make do impact the rest of the family. The son being embarrassed is natural and there isn't anything that needs to be done. He will come to terms with it and hopefully in time lose the embarrassment. Divorce and blended families are hard on kids and there are always consequences when parents break up a kids family.
