I'm upset because the first conversation I have with this man is for him to attend my wedding. Don't you want your mom to be happy just as you are? I told her this was not ok and she went out and bought him a bunk bed that is still within the same room. If you get to a point where you think the person you are dating may be long term and is someone you want to introduce your kids to then great.

The best case scenario is that the new person is not treated as having any authority over your kids. A court order was obtained prohibiting her new man from living under the same roof with the children while she was still legally married.
Ty commented: As a single mom, it is a social stigma for me to date. I can understand where your coming from and how it would be hard to be thrown into such a sticky situation then he assume he will be at your wedding. Will you get your license so you can be ready for emergencies? It has helped me, and I got to make sure everyone is happy. Thanks I think you both need to tell your respective spouses first.
