My partner was jailed for sex offences. He was looking at indecent images (mainly nude boys/other lower level images, nothing hardcore) and had videos of children we'd looked after, after they'd had a bath and they were naked (although nothing untoward was going on). He's come out of prison and we've got back together, although we are not supposed to. He wants to put his past behind him. He's a great father to our son and has really tried hard to inspire him to do well in school, with interests in sport and music and educate him about values in life. Our kids are doing very well too, despite the upheavals they endured losing their dad for those years. We also have a daughter but the problem is, the authorities have said he shouldn't be with me and have contact with the kids. Recently, a spiteful relative has been acting disgruntled about us being back together and I got wind of a threat she made to inform the authorities. This is unsettling our happy family set up. What should I do? Follow the law and break up with my partner if it is going to threaten my kids' welfare, or find a way to deal with this relative and her threats?
