Does BM's husband, or SO, cause any problems? Or does he take a silent role in the background?
BM's husband is the root of all of the problems. They were removed from BM's home because of her, but they refuse to go back because of him.
DH is DS's only father figure. He only causes problems with me ;)
BM has had many live in boyfriends. The current one seems to make a lot of promises and can't follow through. The others would try to buy SS's love. One would give him a hundred dollars to play basketball with him. All have done inappropriate things like take him for piercings and tattoos, knowing that this was against his own father's wishes and the CO. After Hammy would break up with them, often they would call SS and tell him what a slut his mother was.
So I haven't liked any of these men very much.
No man has been as foolish as DH as yet, every time we are hopeful someone will take her off DH's hands, it ends.
BM has only had one boyfriend in the 16 years since her separation from DF ... that was more than 10 years ago, and he left her after a few months to go back to his wife.
DF stays in the background .... he has never spoken to or even met BF, just like I've never spoken to SM.
Bm's dh attempted to be the go between for bm/dh. He'd listen in on their conversations and put in his two cents. It drove my dh nuts and is one of the multiple reasons he will only deal with bm via email.
My sd Step dad is very active with SD however he never disciplines her. He comes from a "whole" family and so this whole step parenting thing is completely new to him he is coming around though and SD loves him to pieces and he loves her he just is having a harder time adjusting to what role to take on.
