Husband keeps suggesting that our son is not his. BUT HE IS. Advice Needed

My husband is mixed (black father and a white mother). I am white. We have two beautiful children. They look completely different and everyone always comments on how different their complexion is. Our oldest has beautiful caramel skin with brown eyes and is almost as dark as my husband. Our second is white with a hint of a yellow undertone and will have either green or hazel eyes. He looks yellowish in person but in pictures is very white. His face is also much lighter than his body. Our son is 6 months old.

For the first 2-3 months, our son was darker and my husband was happy. But he began to get lighter as the months went on. His eyes also changed from very dark grey to blue/grey on the outside with brown in the middle. He was born with VERY dark hair and now has blonde hair. I (and my entire family) have green/blue eyes. My hair is now dark brown, but it was blonde for the first 8 years of my life. My MIL is blonde with hazel eyes.

When the baby began to appear lighter, my husband asked for a paternity test due to his friends and coworkers all bringing up how light our second child is. I obliged because I know that my husband would’ve let the wound fester and hold resentment towards me and the baby as he’s had multiple friends have women cheat. He’s also been cheated on and gets weird about things like that.

The paternity test was an oral DNA swab and I did not touch any portion of it because I didn’t want him to come back and say it was because I did something. The only thing I did was place it in the mail with him watching me. The results showed that he is the father.

We did the test when the baby was 4 months old. He hasn’t really brought it up but I can tell that how light our son is really bothers him.

Tonight, he started saying that he didn’t think the baby was his and that he wasn’t the father. Our oldest heard and said “yes you are our daddy.” He mentioned it multiple times throughout the night. He said that he won’t be a father to him because he’s not a black child. And that about broke me. Baby boy deserves the world and I want to make sure his dad is active in his life.

We have not had issues with trust prior to this and I have not done anything to warrant this. I love him and he’s an amazing father to our oldest. He does play with the baby and will care for him. But he always makes little comments about who his dad might be. I’m worried that those comments will affect our oldest and the little one on a subconscious level. They also hurt me.

I have encouraged him to go get another paternity test done via blood draw if he really felt that our son way not his.

I guess I need advice on how to deal with this.

How did he think he’d be a black child when he’s not 100% himself? Also OP, you are white… that whole statement sounds like he’s trying to prove something to someone.

u/lordeaudre 27d ago

Right! Three of the child’s 4 grandparents are white. It’s perfectly reasonable that the kid looks white. Ffs people who don’t understand stuff like this shouldn’t be in interracial relationships.

u/-snowflower 27d ago

He's got some serious hang ups about race and needs therapy. Why would he get married to a white woman and have kids with her if he could only love a child if they're black?? Does he hate the part of himself that's white too?

u/Beautiful-Finding-82 27d ago

He's basically saying that he believes she has no problem going out and getting pregnant by someone else, what an insult.

u/Ka_aha_koa_nanenane 27d ago

This got lost in the discussion - but it's absolutely the crucial fact for OP to think about.

I know what my reaction would be, she needs to figure it out for herself. She's still open, apparently, to a second test using a blood draw (presumably for the baby and the adult).

She didn't touch the test kit they used until it went into the mail, because she's still trying to convince him. She thinks he will respond to facts.

He isn't going to.

Bro. POST PATERINITY TEST.

I would want to kill this guy.

Like apparently he is standing over the kid saying "I wonder who mommy cheated on me with to make you"

It actually makes me question if this is real it's like a comic book villain.

u/redcore4 27d ago

He’s also doing it, repeatedly, in front of the other kid who’s old enough to understand him - which is pretty much the worst. Even if she had cheated on him, letting the kids know at that age isn’t appropriate.

That older child now thinks maybe mommy did something bad, maybe daddy doesn’t love them and will leave, and maybe they’re not good enough in some other way just like the baby isn’t good enough but they haven’t found out yet what they did wrong.

Oh, I fully believe it's real.

My ex and I are both white. Literally as my child is beginning to exit my body the nurse said "Your baby has blonde hair!" and his father pipes up with, clear as fucking day, "Oh, good thing he's not half Mexican," in front of the midwife, a room full of support l&d staff (my kidneys were failing, it was an emergency induction), and my grandmother. I had no idea until that moment he was questioning paternity.

And after that, he would make regular comments that it was "weird that you look only like your mama." I'm so glad I left him.

“She thinks he will respond to facts. He isn’t going to.”

This. From personal experience, people with cheating-related PTSD can get so deeply paranoid that perhaps the more open OP is, the more OP’s spouse will disbelieve her.

Therapy. Does. WONDERS. Try couple’s counseling. If you hate the counselor, you can go to a different one. You can also do solo counseling.

If you’re unsure about what couples counseling would or should be like, I highly recommend this podcast, Where Should We Begin? It’s consensually-recorded audio of counseling sessions.

Best of luck. Hang in there. <3

It's very common for mixed race people (where one of the races is white) to completely disavow their whiteness, sadly. Like if they just pretend it's not there it'll go away. He absolutely has not accepted his whiteness.

And I said the same as you. If he was so hung up on his kids looking black, procreating with a white woman was never going to give him what he wanted.

205

u/foxscribbles 27d ago

It's not even just a phenomenon in black and white mixed race people.

I watched a YouTube essayist go over how Tiger Woods got (and still gets) flack for not identifying as 'just' black. But rather as multi-racial. (He uses 'Cablinasian' as he has White, black, Asian and Native American heritage. Both of his parents being multi-racial/multi-ethnic themselves.)

He's even expressed that identifying as just African-American would be writing his mother (who is of Thai, Chinese, and Dutch descent) out of his ancestry.

But people ignore his own identity and instead choose to label him as just 'black' because his skin color leans that way.

85

u/auntie_eggma 27d ago

Our desperate need for everything to be simple and easy to categorise is just making things worse. We need to calm the fuck down and allow that things are often more complex than that, and that that's OK.

(Edit: In case it wasn't clear, I'm agreeing with you.😬)

21

u/Ka_aha_koa_nanenane 27d ago

There are plenty of darker skinned Thai and Chinese (and in China, darker skinned Chinese are sometimes subject to questioning/comments).

Naomi Wang Ju is an example. My own Chinese ancestors (I'm pretty much a Tiger Woods - just add in Hawaiian) are from the same part of China as she is.

Lots of dark-skinned Thai people too (where colorism is a big thing and is only now going on - skin bleaching, sunscreen, makeup used to be recommended to darker Thai or Viet or Javanese women).

https://www.allure.com/story/color-and-colorism-in-thailand

But in America, skin color is apparently King. Tiger's bone structure is influenced by Asia, IMO.

u/babybellllll 27d ago

i think part of it (at least in my case as a mixed black/white person) is that we don’t feel ‘enough’ of one race so we try to overcompensate to one side. i know when i was growing up i got teased relentlessly by the only other black kids in my school that i wasn’t ‘black enough’ or that i acted ‘too white’ or was too light skinned. but on the other side i would get called racial slurs by white kids. that messed me up for a long time with feelings of not fitting in with either group. i luckily was able to work through it and got over that but i used to try and push away the white sides of myself as well because i wanted to be accepted by the black people around me

u/auntie_eggma 27d ago

I can understand this, albeit to a far lesser degree. I'm Italian, but spent a chunk of my childhood in the US. This resulted in my always being too Italian for the US and not Italian enough for Italy (I ended up settling in London, which was great until Brexit, but that's another story). And I got called more than my fair share of racial slurs when I lived there (this was as recently as the 90s, so not exactly early on in the Italian presence in the US), because everyone else in the bumfuck little redneck town I was stuck in were all White Anglo-Saxon Protestants whose families had all lived in the same town since like 1700.

Italians haven't always been seen as white in America, as you probably know. At this point, I'm not sure why I should accept their revised judgement anyway. 😂. Like who are a bunch of WASPS to decide first that I'm not white, then that I am? I don't really feel like I'm required to go along with letting them decide my race for me in either direction, y'know? Fair-skinned, I may be (from a lifetime of sun avoidance), but culturally we are not the same, the WASPS and I. It's certainly not up to them to decide whether I 'get to' be one of them or not (I say 'get to' because it's like they think they're doing me some kind of favour... 'We've decided you get to joint Club Whitey now. Aren't you grateful?').

u/On_my_last_spoon 27d ago

My uncle is first gen American with Sicilian heritage. Dude is dark skinned. Consequently, he and my cousin (who takes after his Dad in looks) are often targeted by racists whom fill in the blank any of the pick a dark skinned ethnicity they want to hate. You’d think this would make them sensitive to people who experience prejudice.

Nope.

These two are some of the most racist people I know.

And this with my uncle experiencing directly the “don’t marry the Italian” from my grandparents.

u/earthgarden 27d ago

Some people are just crazy and stupid when it comes to race. It’s like they don’t understand reproduction and hereditary works exactly the same with mixed race people as mono-race people. You get half your genetic info from your mom, half from your dad.

I know this mixed guy (black/white) who had kids with a mixed woman (asian/white) and both of them were SHOCKED that one of his kids had blonde hair and the other had slanted eyes. I was like Dude your mama is a blonde! And her mama has asian eyes, why are y’all so surprised. These are YOUR genes that you got from your mothers and passed onto your kids.

Another mixed woman I know was surprised her kids came out with green eyes. Not only did her husband have green eyes, her father was white with green/grey eyes. But because her own eyes were brown like her mom’s, she didn’t understand that she still got and passed on green eye information from her dad.

You even see this stupidity with mono racial people. There were rumors for years about Prince Harry being the result of an affair Princess Diana had because of his red hair, it’s like people didn’t understand that his GRANDFATHER was a redhead, that’s where he got it from. Or rather he got the redhead info from his dad, who got it from his dad.

207

u/kristinpeanuts 27d ago

Exactly! Also if you see a picture of Harry's grandfather when he is young - he looks just like his grandson.

u/FUCK_INDUSTRIAL 27d ago

It was crazy how all of the tabloids were insistent that Harry wasn’t Charles’ son. They shut up pretty quick when Philip died and pictures of him as a young man were shown. Harry is a dead ringer for his grandfather.

That was always the thing that killed me about the "Harry isn't Charles's son." It looks like Philip, Charles father, spit him out. Of course, he is his son! He also has the same nose and close-set eyes as Chuck. He's just a ginger.

As for OP, your husband needs therapy. Your kids are 3/4s white (at least). If his Black father is American with a family that has been here over 100 years there is no guarantee that his Black father is 100% black. Get your husband into therapy or be prepared for it to get worse.

u/TBIandimpaired 27d ago

To be fair, it is fine to be shocked, but it isn’t right to deny paternity just because of coloring.

I was genuinely shocked when my firstborn came out with blue eyes and blonde hair. Because both of my parents have brown eyes. My husband has brown eyes. Of course when I look back at family tree, I know that his father has blue eyes, and my Oma has blue eyes. My father’s parents had brown eyes. So I always just assumed that the chances of my child having blue eyes was slim. My other has brown eyes and strawberry blonde hair. No idea where the strawberry blonde comes from lol. But I guess I will never understand paternity fears. But my husband has never once doubted that the children are his. Even when his sister said he should ask for a paternity test (at a family dinner with his parents).

This guy is just an asshole.

u/RubiWeapon 27d ago edited 27d ago

I like to say I'm the definition of a punnett square. Both parents have brown eyes, older brother has brown eyes, I have blue eyes. Paternal grandfather had blue eyes, maternal grandmother had blue eyes. Junior high science class told me why I have them.

My own son is mixed and I like to say he is ethnically ambitious looking, because nothing of his racial mixture is immediately evident. That could change though, he's still little.

That's a great way to think of it. The more we learn about how people pass on physical traits to their children, the more we learn that it's a lot more complicated than even the "facts" I learned at university a lifetime ago. It is entirely possible for a set of parents to have 10 children and have each of the 10 look completely different than the other. Every kid results from shaking up of the gene pool, and starting over. What bothers me is the amount of sheer human misery that continues to be caused by people concluding x, y, or z can't be related because skin, hair, eyes aren't what they expected. If your child is healthy and happy, he or she is a gift from God. (And probably is a gift from God no matter what). Be grateful.

Sounds like he hates white people and he is going to use his child to punish you. Best thing to do is just let him know that you are his WHITE wife and that the boy is his 3/4 white son. Who you are not going to let him punish any more, so he needs to either agree to an additional DNA test by people of his choice or to a divorce and the giving up of all parental right to him and his broth . Then he can go find a 100 % black woman to marry and have 100 black kids with. His choice. Stop giving into his hated for white people.

Also, maybe a bit of learning about how genetics work. Even past the positive DNA test, if he doesn’t doubt her loyalty, then the boy’s appearance is fully plausible with them both as parents.

Yea my bet is this has nothing to do with him actually believing you cheated and more to do with his issues about race. “I will not be a father to a non black child” excuse me ?

What did he think would happen when having children with a white woman.

u/[deleted] 27d ago

I know ultimatums aren't exactly healthy, but this kind of feels like grounds for one. OP is right it will affect her children, and it may even start to influence her.

I witnessed this with my own mom, my grandfather spent years denying he could be her biological father, as a result he started to push her away, my grandparents faught about it a lot, there was obvious favoritism towards the other children, and eventually they just started dumping my mom off on her aunts and uncles because it created so much hostility. Even now, as adults, she's kind of an outcast in her immediate family.

This really needs to become a "we all get therapy as a family or you learn to be bitter on your own" kind of situation before he starts really singling the brother out, he can't use his or his friends past traumas to wriggle out of it, OP entertained his whining for a DNA test the first time but he's obviously got issues and he's willing to make that everyone else's problem.

"He said that he won’t be a father to him because he’s not a black child."

Children are wired to love their caregivers, and it messes them up very very badly if they sense that their caregivers don't love them back. This is a fundamental building block of your child's healthy life, and your husband is shitting on it.

For some fekking reason my family used to joke with me when I was a very young g child that I wasn’t theirs and they “bought me from gypsies” (icky but this was the early 80s)

Not only that, but if I was “bad” (and I often was- thanks undiagnosed ADHD)- they would say that they were going to give me BACK to the gypsies.

They would all laugh and laugh, and I would cry and be terribly upset which would Make them laugh more.

To feel “othered” in your own family is super detrimental. I have always had massive abandonment issues. In every relationship in my life a simple fight makes me wonder if I’m going to be broken up with or left.

There’s definitely some other Big causal factors for these disproportionate feelings in my life, but these memories of even teasingly said that I was bought and not really wanted and could just as easily be given away have always haunted me.

That’s true. He is going to favor one child over the other because of the color of their skin. He got the paternity test and it was proven he is the father. The favoritism will destroy the kids because the kids will be against each other and one will be jealous over the other and the lighter child will feel like he did something wrong because his dad isn’t treating him the same as his brother. If things don’t change, you really have to put your children first, so they don’t get destroyed mentally by their father and consider divorcing and having him pay child support.

I’m now an adult (32), it hurts more that no one ever acknowledged how messed up it was to hear all that as a kid

Took my parents until the past 3 years to really comes to terms with how messed up it was

I MADE them realized how hurtful and stupid their skin comments were when I had kids

I’m light, my husband is white, of COURSE my kids came out white

My dad had to deal with it all over again and I told him to get over it, it’s skin

Thankfully, he snapped out of it pretty quick, since I made it clear we were gone if he didn’t

I wasn’t gonna deal with his “but…they don’t look like me, people think they aren’t my grandkids when they see me”

Honestly, the only way forward.

The husband is blatantly determined to make it clear he has zero trust in OP, going so far as to say she cheated on him and is trying to make him raise a child that isn't his own. He gets the DNA test back, but that's still not enough. Every child they have together, he is going to accuse her of cheating on him.

He is projecting very, very severely. OP needs to stop and start putting an intense focus light on him and see what exactly is going on in his life because this right here is not a partnership. He doesn't want to be in it, and he is accusing OP of something incredibly horrible - cheating on him, breaking their marriage vows, and having so little respect for him or their child that she would try and lie so that her husband would raise a child that is not his own.

That's seriously fucked up. I don't give a fuck about him being cheated on in the past. If he wasn't able to enter his marriage without telling his children to their face that they aren't his kids - making snide little comments about who their real father is - then he has zero business being a husband or a father.

But honestly, I think that's what he wants. An excuse so he can leave and have no responsibility.

Your husband is a racist.

Girl he knows that the child is his.

Firstly, there's the DNA test that proved it and that you took willingly. He doesn't seem to be inclined to take another one either, it seems.

Secondly, do you truly believe that he would be so calm about the whole ordeal of (1) you cheating (2) him raising another man's child? Especially since he's presumably still traumatised from being cheated on in the past?

Your second is simply not up to his expectations and instead of admitting it and working on it, he is looking for an excuse that wouldn't make him look like an AH in the eyes of the others.

Perhaps he was bullied in the past due to his own skin colour and living in between two worlds, not truly belonging to either one, and feels that he needs to prove something to someone. Or there's something else going on. Still, it isn't an excuse and you need to think very well if you are fine with it damaging your kids. Especially since it seems as if he doesn't have an issue with manipulating your oldest already by discussing his concerns in the presence of his children.

Exactly. He knows he's the father, he doesn't want to be.

I have friends who have a pretty white kid, even though his Dad is 100% Black-DNA tested. The kid is half Black and half Norwegian, and he looks like he's maybe Greek. Luckily, his Dad is a comedian so he just jokes about it but I can't imagine a parent shunning a child because his skin isn't the right shade. I concur with the people saying your husband needs therapy. BTW, I had my parent say maybe they weren't my parent in front of me when I was 5 and it fucked me up for many years. Don't say that shit to your fucking kid.

Your husband is a racist, straight-up. Just because he married someone whiter than him, doesn’t mean he isn’t racist. That isn’t how sexual attraction works. We should call out racism whenever and wherever we see it.

I would make it clear that he needs to get some help. Issues like this are deeply ingrained.

I don’t why this sub is popping up in my feed 😂

You know who unreasonably insists someone is a cheater, even when presented with evidence that they aren’t ? A cheater.

I wonder if he’s been creeping with a married lady with paternity questions.

Ok, yeah, it would be nice to convince him, but don’t you dare let him treat the kids differently. Your obligation is to protect your children. If that has to be protection from their father then so be it. Tell him he is welcome to do whatever testing will ease his mind, but he is either in this family or he is out. He is NOT allowed to emotionally and psychologically abuse one of your children because he doesn’t understand basic science

your husband is a POS. to even say something like that where one of the children can hear it is despicable. i would personally be divorcing him. he is going to set that child up for lifelong issues.

u/alwaysright12 27d ago

You deal with it by divorcing him

He's saying this shit in front of his child and you are letting him

Both of you are awful parents

"Our oldest heard..." Right there. You two have really messed this up now. Whatever your disagreements, whatever his suspicions, you two have just caused permanent, life long damage to your children with your recklessness. This will never be forgotten.

I am white. My wife is half black. Our kids are all like a light caramel (nearly white but kinda yellow). They tan very well but otherwise they just look white.

Your husband needs to grow the fuck up.
