Is my partner right?

I've been with my partner for almost 3 years. We are due to move in together this Christmas. But I got one biggest problem that I cannot get my head whether I should.
I have a son aged 13. With ADHD and only 3% concentration span. He crosses the line, when staying at my partners house last July, and since August my son cross the line big time. My partner hadn't seen him since August and my son accepted that he was wrong and ready to apologies. My partner said he would like to accept his apologies as soon he does he can go home. I thought as an adult you should accept apologies and move on and be civilise. My partner said he wants absolutely nothing to do with my son. My son is moving in with his dad at Xmas, and I will have him every weekend at my house not at ours. Should I end this relationship? Please help!

I hae to agree with the ladies here. Why would you choose a man over your child who needs you the most and with his issues that you have been dealing with for a long time? If a man is not willing to accept a child who has some needs beyond that of a typical child, then he is not worth having around at all. The only reason a woman should be making the choice to let the kids go with the dad is if she is not financially sound, has health issues, or others that make things very hard to deal with at the moment and going to dad's is the only other option at the time.

You have a partner who is saying he wants nothing to do with your son, and you are prepared to accept that?? Really? I'm sorry, how are you planning on explaining this to your son? That you chose a man over him? I don't mean to be rude, but you honestly can't see something wrong with this picture?

I would seriously reconsider moving in with your partner. Do you really want to have to choose between your child and your partner? NO man should ever make a Mother choose.
