Has anyone had to deal with an in-law that is not supportive of you trying to work things out? I have a 22 year old step-son who refuses to even speak to me since finding out about the affair. He and his dad were never really close before and it seems as though he is using this to get closer to his dad at the cost of our relationship. His older siblings and I have talked and they have said they still love me and it will take time to get back to where we were but he refuses. Mind you, this kid has made plenty of life changing mistakes and his dad and I have both always been there for him. He even lived on my couch for three months without looking for a job or contributing around the house while I cleaned up after him, cooked for him, did his laundry, etc. I never once complained to him and tried to be very supportive. My H and I start to make progress and then he talks to his son and he completely shuts down and we have a major setback.
