My husband doesn't want my son going out of town with us..

We are seperated but trying to work it out. Every year we go to TN for Easter. Last night I asked was he OK with my son going. He said he would be uncomftable and have a bad weekend if my son went. So, should I just tell him to have fun and maybe next time we can all go. Or should I just tell him to kiss myA$$ and move on?

  • Ask him if he wants to go.

  • I don't get why you asked him if he really didn't have a choice in the matter anyway. Is this usually a family event or something you and DH do as a couple?

  • Why wouldnt he want your son to be there with you for Easter? That is not right at all. How old is your son and is your son his son too? I'm guessing he isn't.

  • I know in Ohio, the laws forbids me from taking my son ANYWHERE out of the state unless his father agrees & gives me written permission OR I go to the courts & the judge grants me the right to take him out of state. If I take him out of state without either and his father finds out & presses charges, I can be charged with KIDNAPPING! How crazy right ? I think its best to avoid TN for now & have fun in your own state. Better safe than sorry.

  • We all go as a family every year. He gets his 2 youngest daughters and I take my two kids. My son does want to go because my Dh mom is so ogood to the kids. She is not rich but she is so sweet with them. My son would be upset knowing that his stepdad told me he couldn't go.

  • My kids father is deceased so there is no problem with me taking him.

  • I think stepdad stays home. Or you ALL stay home if you don't ALL go.

  • I spent way too many years letting my ex make decisions and trying to be fair. If i had it to do all over again I would do what my children would have prefered, without giving them the choice. Cuz it's way too much pressure on a child to ask them what they want, they feel like they have to choose and don't want to hurt either parents feelings.

  • My DH has told me that he doesn't like my son but I never thought that he would try to keep him from family functions. What's next? Christmas!!
