(Canada)

My husband son Daniel is going to celebrate his 20th birthday soon and they usually go out for dinner to celebrate it, my husbands sons mother, soms auntie, uncle, cousin( all from my husbands ex wife family) the thing is this time he wants me to come with them. Do you think its proper, even just thinking about it makes my brain say big no...he saidthey were doing it for his son, dont you its a awkward? Thanks.

Hello Louie,

My question to you is - what makes you uncomfortable? You are married to the father of the birthday boy, so your relationship is certainly appropriate to the occasion! Do you feel your presence will be disturbing to the son or his mother? If so, they I'd advise your not attending. Otherwise, I recommend you discuss your feelings with your husband so together you can reach a suitable resolution.

Good luck!
