Husband wants to go get his children in another state as they currently are with their mother. They are my step children. I know this isn’t a good idea because they are safer where they are now.....

He needs to leave them alone, I haven’t seen my kids physically for 2 weeks now and it will stay same till April 30th. I am quarantined alone miles away after flying back to the country. We FaceTime and I am glad they are safe. This too shall pass.

As long as they are safe, they should stay where they’re at if possible. This is no time for custody disputes or being petty or fighting over this. It’s an extraordinary circumstance and everyone just needs to work together. UNLESS they aren’t safe, the ex-wife isn’t following guidelines, etc.

... OP do you not like his children? Sounds like an underlying tone. I get the safety and pandemic.

...please help me understand my logic that they are safer where they are than potentially exposing them and us to this virus

@OP if he can get them without stopping anywhere except for the ex's house I don't see why he shouldn't bring them home, assuming you and he have been staying home as much as possible for two weeks and have been washing your hands, etc, and have not been around know carriers.

Unless he feels that they are unsafe/in danger where they are, he should stay at home. In these circumstances you need to think about the worst case scenario, what if the two of you have it and spread it to the kids? Is that a risk he’s willing to take? Unless you’ve both been indoors with no outside contact (not even out for grocery shop) for two weeks you can’t be 100% certain. Even then he/they could pick it up on the trip across or back.

Also, based on your experience, when’s the optimal time to tell employer/ coworkers about your pregnancy?
