Does it matter? Disowning a daughter, sister, cousin, friend or even a stranger because their partner is autistic is pretty unconscionable.

This seems to be the situation. It is very confusing. I can understand being upset that your son-in-law cheated on your son with your daughter. I don't see what the autism has to do with it, though. The question is mis-worded.

Is this some kind of a riddle?

If this is remotely real (which is doubtful), the daughter owes it to her future child that she keeps her "father" as far out of the picture as possible.

So let me get this right, your grandchild having a father with high functioning autism is unacceptable but her having an abortion or giving the baby up for adoption is OK? Because those are your only options here. She’s pregnant now. That can’t be undone.

Personally I think you’ve done her a favor, she’s going to have an actual baby to take care of soon so won’t have time for your toddler tantrums anymore.

Here is her other post. Very confusing. Especially when the OP only says a few words as a reply. She hasn't replied on the other thread.

Well, then you are disowning your grandchild too.

I think that the OP is having "fun" with us -- read his posts. Either that, or this is the one of the most dysfunctional families I have ever read about on C-D.

Here is another one of his posts:
