Dear MUB,

I am currently in a relationship with the father of my second son. A few months ago, the father of my first born got baptized and now he wants to take on his responsibility as a father.  He has been sending between $600usd – $900usd for me to take care of our child and help me out with my other responsibilities.

However, my current boyfriend who has been out of a job for the past 7 months is having an issue with me taking the money. He claims that the father of my first son is sending me money as a way of trying to win me back over.

I know that is far from the truth and he’s only trying to make up for not helping me out for the past 12 years, but at the same time I know that my boyfriend feels intimidated.

If I stop taking the money we will end up in a difficult situation and my family will suffer. I am between a rock and a hard place. What should I do?
