I am 46 and my wife is 45. Our daughter is 19 and our son is 26.
My son had a girlfriend whom he wanted to marry. The first time he brought this girl home, I was bowled over. She is 23 and stunningly beautiful. We gave her a warm welcome into our family.
They got married last year and it was a great day.She and my son live with us, and my wife got her a job at the supermarket where she works. We all went to my nephew’s wedding a few months ago and stayed in a hotel from the Friday night.
We were all over one another and ended up having sex on the back seat of my car
My daughter-in-law and I stayed drinking in the bar on the first night after my wife and son went to bed. We went outside for a smoke but sat in my car as it was chilly. I don’t know why but I leaned over to give her a kiss on the cheek and she kissed my lips. That was it. We were all over one another and ended up having sex on the back seat. We agreed it would not happen again and would keep our secret. She loves my son and we didn’t want to hurt anyone.
A couple of months later, we had a family Sunday lunch and my son said he had something to tell us.With a huge grin on his face, he said his wife was pregnant and they were over the moon. I congratulated them but felt numb inside.I talked to her the next day about her dates and she admits there is a chance the baby could be mine.I said I wanted to be with her and would leave my wife. She doesn’t know what she wants. The next day I told my wife we were over, packed my bags and left home.
This whole thing is such a mess and I have no idea what to do.
Marriage Chronicles: Your son is going to hate you for a very long time if not forever. You don’t have to be too selfish to the point of destroying the family you built over the years. So I advise you to calm down, think about the damage this will do to your reputation as a good father and husband and allow your moral instinct to talk to you.
