Fathers and sons

By Anonymous - 19/01/2022 11:01

Today, my husband and son haven’t spoken to each other in over a year. I’ve tried everything from bargaining, crying, and even screaming at them both, but they seem determined to hate each other. At this rate, our son will move out and we’ll never see him or our future grand babies. FML

you don't mention what started it. try and focus on that issue. maybe spell with a therapist cuz they probably won't. good luck

I would like to know what the father did to the son to start this. It had to be something serious for the son to not speak to dad. I know from experience how the fathers words/actions can drive a wedge to that point, as I went through it with my biological dad.

sounds like he's under 18, no matter what this is your husband's fault. I wouldn't listen either if I hated my father and everyone wanted to compromise. there is a reason he hates him

Worst case if you can't figure out what's going on between them or a way to fix it, you can at least try to stay in your son's life. Just because they can't stand each other doesn't necessarily mean you can't have a functional relationship with both of them.

That’s why my mom never got involved in the issue with my dad outside of her asking me why I felt the way I did. After telling her, she understood and supported my decision, same with my stepdad who became my defacto dad that day.

Things don’t deteriorate to this point for no reason. What are you not telling us? Go fix that instead.

Maybe instead of trying to push them together, form a relationship with your son independent of your husband.

Why not try talking nicely? Your tactics are shitty and manipulative.

I need more information. What started this feud?
