Son paid ex to have sex with brother; Just Joan CATCH UP ON JUST JOAN ONLINE www.dailyrecord.co.uk/joanburnie.
Q My 33-year-old son from my first marriage persuaded a 36-year-old ex-girlfriend of his to have sex with his half brother on his 18th birthday.
He paid her pounds 50 to do it. I was furious after he told my ex, his dad, about it.
But what's worse is that my youngest son now thinks he's in love with this woman.
He's been hanging around her house and I know for a fact she's had sex with him again.
He doesn't know his brother paid her the first time. Do I tell him or not? Both his half brother and my ex say it would be cruel.
I can't tell his dad because he'd kill my oldest son.
A YOUR son's half brother behaved completely irresponsibly. No wonder you're steaming.
But I don't think there's too much you can do. The more you oppose the relationship, the more your son is likely to continue with it.
Young love or, more accurately, young lust is usually very intense. The only comfort is it seldom lasts long. So I'd not say too much to him or for that matter his dad.
P.S. I assume he's no longer paying the woman - if he is, you're entitled to point out that that is prostitution.
