Ask Mr. Dad: As marriage approaches, fiance's son is rebelling

Dear Mr. Dad: I'm engaged to an amazing man with a 9-year old son who's with him every other weekend. When I first started going out with his father, the boy and I got along great. But the closer we get to the marriage, the worse things get between us. I've tried to talk with him about it, but he just screams at me that, "You're not my mother!" and runs to his dad, whose usual response is to take his son's side and spend more time with him. That leaves me feeling completely left out and unheard. I'm not trying to replace my fiance's son's mother or interfere with his relationship with his dad. At the same time, I need more attention and understanding from my fiance. How do I have these conversations?
