SuzyQ7879 Posted November 12, 2010 Report Share Posted November 12, 2010 I hope someone can help me with a little a perspective. Here's the deal: My husband used to be a deacon in the Southern Baptist church and married to the Preacher's daughter. They divorced when my step-son was 2. He is now 12. We have been married for 7 years and my husband has been a convert for 3. We have my step-son from Thurs-Sat night so Sundays have never really been an issue. When we have had him on the occasional Sunday and taken him to church, his mother was hysterical. For those who may not know....Mormons = VERY BAD CULT to Southern Baptists. It just so happens that we have him this weekend and my step-son, with his mom beside him, told husband that he did not want to come visit if he had to go to church. Also told his father that if he took him home he would feel like he is choosing church over the extra time he could be spending with him. My poor husband is so afraid that his son is going to resent him, he is in knots. He was just going to stay home with him but I said he needed to show his son church was important regardless of the church. He says I don't understand because he already has so little time with him and doesn't want him to resent him. I want to be a "good understanding wife" but I think he needs to not let the kid make the choices. He's 12, he'll go to church and it won't kill him. I see the emotional power-plays but my husband can't get over the fear of his son resenting him. What do I do? Anyone else ever been through something like this?
