Definitely a novice here-need advice
I've been divorced for 9 years and have been without anyone in my life until last year. My DS has lived with me full-time since the divorce but has regular visitation with his BF on holidays [summer, christmas, etc] as BF lives 3 provinces away. My DS is now 14. I met a man at the age of 46. I fell madly in love with this man and realized that I had never been in love before. This man has 4 adult children [age 20 to 33] who are having difficulty with our relationship. He has relocated to be with me but went back to home province for Christmas [without me]. I understood, because it was still very new but now we are dealing with a "family reunion" weekend and his kids are refusing to go if I attend. He fears losing his kids. Now I feel like he is choosing them over me. I suspect his x-wife is behind the resistance to meeting me and getting to know me. I'm looking for advice in how to handle.
