Marriage over for protecting baby? Husbands family have herpes and insist on kissing my baby
So I really need some advice. My husbands family have the herpes ex virus and she's already been kissed 3 times by family members with herpes in her 2 month little life. I have asked him to please tell his family members not to kiss her until she's 6 months and her defences are strong enough for the virus not to be fatal. I think that's a compromise cause quite honestly I don't want my baby daughter getting a coldsore but instead I've said to just wait until she's old enough to be safe to infect her.
Here's the crazy thing. Instead of understanding this huge compromise he's told me that he won't be with me unless I let his family kiss her now. He's seen all the medical advice and the stories of babies dying from contracting herpes and he says its not his opinion and he won't be with me if his family can't kiss her. I understand grandparenrs want to kiss their baby but when she's already been kissed 3 times by herpes I think that telling them 'be careful' isn't working. Many stories takk about babyies who have died or nearly died because a family member kissed the baby on the cheek without realising they had a coldsore coming up and that poor little thing died of meningitis or got severely ill. I can't understand his lack of basic paternal instinct. What would you do in this situation?
