Are you a mom?

I'm recently re-married. About 9 months. There has been a lot of tension recently and most of it revolves around my 8 yr son. He informed me the other day that he doesn't have an emotional connection to my son and doesn't think he will ever be able to form one. He doesn't want to be part of his life, i.e. baseball games, school stuff. He just doesn't want to feel guilty if we have children that he will give that child all of the stuff that I want him to do with my son.
It's not like I hid the fact I had a child before we got married. He just didn't realize how it was going to be.
Is it important that his stepfather is involved in his life?
Just so you know, my son comes first in my world, and while I want my marriage to work I will never compromise my son's happiness. Right now my son is unaware that any of this is going on.
I think my husband just doesn't want to try.
And has anyone ever been through this at all?
