If your DH's child suddenly showed up...

what would you do (not literally shows up at the door, but makes contact)?  Let's say that your DH had signed over his rights to this child when the child was much younger.  Let's also say that you have a child with this man, but he never mentioned this other child.  What would your reaction be?  How would you handle the situation?  What about with bio mom, how would you handle the situation with her?

I would welcome him because regardless, it's still your stepson and he deserves a chance. I wouldn't mind meeting the bio-mom and determining whether I like her or not depending on her intentions and demeanor.

Yep, that was my first thought . . . "Why does my DH have a husband?"

Quoting Mommy_Jenx3:

My dh better not have a husband on the side!

i would basically sh*t bricks since i have been with hubs for 14yrs and he was 19 when we met.  ( only kids he has are ours as far as either of us know) I would figure out a way to get over it and expand our family yet again. The child isn't at fault and the actions taken at the time might have been what was best. He still shoould have said something though.

Accept the kid. Talk to the bio mom if needed. Talk to dh about not telling you.

I'd be furious at my husband. I've asked him a few times if he has other children, and he's always told me no, and none that he knows of.

I don't know my husband does not have a husband. And seeing as I was DH's first it wouldn't happen.
