Fiancé hates my 17 year old son

My fiancé and his 3 children (8, 10, 12) moved in with my son and me a year ago. We've been together 3 years. He hates my son although he won't admit it. My son is not mean or bad in any way. For most of his life, it was just the two of us and he pretty much did as he pleased within reason. He has a learning disability and is socially awkward and very few friends. His only interests are really video games and his computer. My fiancé's kids are very involved in scouts and sports. He gets aggravated when I don't force my 17 year old son to come with us on all family functions. Frankly, I am very uncomfortable when my fiancé is around my son because he doesn't hide his dislike for him vey well. Also, his kids like to press my sons buttons and he has a very low tolerance for them. I don't know what to do anymore. Any time I try to discuss with m fiancé it turns into an argument. I am looking for advice on things to do to improve their relationship.

Quite frankly, he would not be my fiance any longer. My children are more important then any relationship. I am with my husband, their father....but if I was ever in a situation where I had to be concerned about a man liking my kids, they would be out the door.

I'm wondering if this is a new thing or has it been going on since the beginning?
If it's been going on for a while then I would have left a long time ago. My children come before any man in my life!
You can force people to get along but you can expect an adult to act like one and not like a child.

If someone treated my child this way, they would no longer be allowed the privilege of associating with either myself or my child.
In other words, he's not worth your effort. Good thing you found out before you married.
