How to help solve a family feud(4 Posts)
Been with my partner for years now and got engaged 2 year ago was supposed to be mr and Mrs in July there but corona had other plans so now hopefully and finally will be june. I have a teenager (16) from a previous relationship and my partner has a son from a previous relationship too everyone gets on fine and was ok till May when my partner and his son had a fall out over something stupid he let things settle and calm down and since has been trying to get in touch with his son but to no avail hes sent cards saying sorry has texted asking to meet up and sit and talk about things like adults but nothing. My future mother in law agrees its a stupid thing to fall out over and has suggested my partner fixes it and he has said he has tried and is so much he can do. I have not reached out to his son as I feel its not my place but I did try and message the sons gf you woman to woman in hope she could get him to at least talk even if its over the phone but I think she's either read the message and chose to ignore it or is not at all bothered.
Is there another way to heal the rift or is it a case of hopefully the son sees sense and let him come to his dad on his own or should my partner keep trying?
Stay out of it, none of your concern, clearly a lot has happened that you are unaware off, his son must be pretty hurt and angry to be no contact with his dad. I think your partner is the problem, and it's down to him to fix it.
The only way a rift can heal is if the people directly in the rift are open to it. It's unlikely an outside intervention is going to change things. Stay out of it, leave this to your partner.
