I am not sleeping with my son!

August 24, 2022

Dear Pastor,

I am a young woman and I am single. I am living with my son who is 15 years old. I met a man who told me that he loved me and he would like to come and live with me.

I told him of my living condition and why that won't be possible. I did not know that this man believed that my son and I were lovers. I was so upset when one of his friends told me that he did not believe me.

My son is in high school. We sleep on the same bed, yes, but not all the time. But since I heard what this man said, I don't want to have anything to do with him. I consider him a dog to think so low of me. Why would I want to have a relationship with my own son?

I would like to have a man, yes, but he cannot be my son. I did not tell my son what I heard this man say. He would hate him. I told this man that I have been responsible for my son from he was a baby, so wherever I go he would have to come with me. He said that he would not be marrying my son, he would be marrying me. So I know this is not a good man to marry. As I said, my son is only 15 years old. It is not time for him to go out in the world and face life, I have to help him. Please for your thoughts.


Dear P.,

This man who is showing interest in you is not a good man. I am sure that you told him that your son was 15 years old. Why would he want you to put out your son so that both of you can live together? He is a dirty man and you should tell him not to visit you again. In fact, you should block him.

And you are quite correct. If you were to get married, your husband should agree for your son to come with you until he reaches the age that he can stand on his own. You have been a good mother. Don't allow any dirty-minded man to take you and make you into a fool.
