I am going through this problem right now with my new husband. Why I didn't see the signs in the beginning I don't know but now it's obvious he has no regards to my feelings. Whenever I attempt to discuss a topic or situation with him; if it is something he doesn't want to talk to about. He flat out tells me that no one is going to tell him about.....it's non-negotiable. I told him that our relationship is based on two people not one and that we both need to have a common ground on things that affect our relationship and our interaction with each other. He is one way with me around people at our jobs (same building, different jobs) and another way with me at home. I can't continue to live this way and need help or suggestions.View Thread
I am somewhat in this same situation and don't know what to do. My two children are adults now 24 & 27, my new husbands children are 10, 12, & 13. I was okay with the kids coming over every other weekend, but now one of the kids want to move in full time with us. My husband said he will not tell his son no and I understand that; I would never tell him no either. They love and need each other but.....I want no part of raising another child. My husband is only two years younger than I am but he got a later start than I did. There are times that I feel horrible about my unwillingness to do this and my lack of desire. The kids do come first and always will, that's why I'm ready to bow out of this relationship, my husband told me if I don't like it move on. It's non-negotiable.View Thread
