  1. Me and my fiancé have been together for almost 4yrs. We have a child together and both of us have a child/children from a previous marriage. I have full custody of my oldest, she doesn’t see her dad. My fiancé has joint custody of his two kids, which I find to be very disruptive to every day life. At this point, his custody situation is really causing a lot of problems. His children refuse to come to our house - say they are uncomfortable here. They stay at his parents during his visitation. Typical grandparents. No responsibilities, waited in hand and foot, no consequences, no rules really. M
  2. My husband and I have come to the decision that we will be adopting our great nephew in about 3 years time. My mom and step dad said that is about how long they can hang in to raise him. He will get closer to us more and more as the time gets closer. When he comes to us he might be about 4 years old .
  3. Ive been talking to this girl for about 2 months now and are both into eachother. But the last few days she has been not herself and seams really blunt with me. I think its from me smoking more reguarly. I met her two days ago; everything was fine and today it has all crashed down. I asked her whats wrong and she just explained she was going through some stuff w her step dad, and that 'i dont think im what you need rn' implying something, but cant get my head around what. I dont know where her head thruthly is atm but I want things to go back to usual. All im asking is for somebody else's opin
  4. I’ve recently started dating the same guy I dated when we were 13. We are 20 now and I have a child. His ex and him are expecting a baby in February. When we started to talk again we felt a really strong connection between us like nothing changed over the 7 years apart from each other. Every time I try to figure out what’s in the best interest for his baby he completely blows it off and gets upset when I worry about it. He tells me it isn’t my problem to deal with because his baby’s mom already doesn’t let him be apart of it what so ever for her own spiteful reasons. He hasn’t told her about u
  5. First a bit of back story. Got married at 18 in 1999 to my high school sweetheart( so I thought). He was controlling in school but once we got married it stopped, for a year anyway. Then got worse. I was isolated from my family, had to get his permission to spend over $100 of my money from my job ( we had separate bank accounts) I was only allowed to have friends that he was friends with first. It was never physical just emotional and mental abuse. I kept thinking it would get better. Fast forward to 2009 and I got pregnant. Thinking things would change I was happy. Mental abuse continued. Fas
  6. My wife cheat3xabd left me almodt two years ago. We jave two kids a three year old abd an 8 year old . The 8 year old is my step daughter and ive been in herlife since she was 6 months old. Her dad is also in the picture but it always has been a every other weekend thing Me and the ex do not get along and constantly fight When she left she gave me the kids half the time. Think mainly because she wanted freedom. Now shes downplaying my role both now and before with my step daughter who i regard as my child. When we split i was worried her dad and mom might try to take her but both not only
  7. Hey everyone, I just joined today because I am in a pretty tricky situation with a long background story, sorry for the following essay. (I am 20, My Girlfriend and the girl are both 18) My girlfriend and I met online about 2 years ago, she lived in the UK and I lived in France. I then decided to leave France to be able to live with her and see her everyday as long distance just hurts. Since then I got a great job, we have an own little place and life is great together (every couple has little ups and downs at some point like stupid little arguments). Anyways a reason why we moved ou
  8. Hello everyone, I'm hoping that I can get some advice on helping my husband with maturing his emotional state. Very long story short, he had a very traumatic childhood (divorced parents at young age, emotionally abusive mother, loving step-father committed suicide, lost friends to illness in his teens). When we met, it was about a year after his step-father passed away. He has come a long way in the last 10 years and we got married this year. We love each other to bits, but I've noticed recently that I seem to have taken almost a mothering role in our relationship. I've probably noticed
  9. Last Sunday, 6 days ago, my Dad really unexpectedly passed away. He was 67, he had never been properly sick a day in his life. He woke up on Sunday morning feeling sweaty and breathless. He was supposed to go golfing with his best friend who’s a retired GP, when he arrived in his house his friend checked with blood pressure and heart rate which were completely normal. He was concerned he might have angina, he gave him a letter and told him to go to A&E to get checked out. My dad was so unconcerned about this that he drove himself to A&E. Once he got there he started deteriorating very
  10. hi iv been in a relationship cor about 5 years. we have a really loving relationship and he is a fantastic step dad to my kids from a previous marrage. we have had our ups and downs but last year was really hard with work issues, a death in the family etc etc. I found out in january that he had been talking to other women online. the conversations were sexual in nature and hed did send images of himself naked to one girl. we talked it over and agreed to give things another go. At the time i asked him if there was anything else i needed to know. i found out yesterday he has ran up a fe
  11. Well my fiancee and I recently moved into my step mothers house. Everything was good until one day I came home from work and I had a weird feeling. I don't know why but I had a feeling that they had sex. My dad works out of town and it's just my step mother and the kids. My fiancee has never given me a reason to not trust him. I've been cheated on a lot in the past by my ex bf. I questioned both my step mother and fiancee about it and they said no. My step mother laughed when I asked her and said " eww. That is gross Ashley" my fiancee was calm and said he would never betray me like that. I le
  12. After getting a job offer from a company for a position as a software engineer the company did an investigation. Which, I am guessing is taking close to 2 weeks. I've never been in a position where such an extensive investigation has been done before and to be honest it has been stressing me a lot. On of the jobs I said I worked for a school to build a website for them. It was actually my step father who worked for the school and the site was a small project for an after school robotics club. I don't think he was prepared, the company called him as I listed him as one of the references and
  13. I am really looking for some words of advice about a recent breakup from my partner and fiancee of three years. My partner and I are both 37 years old. We had never been in a long-term relationship before. She is quite different to me but we hit it off and enjoyed being together. My partner is different to me in that she is far less patient, can be very defensive at times, grumpy, and speaks her mind. I have always felt she is a very vulnerable person and had a terrible childhood and adult life at times in her past. Despite our differences, which she would at times be negative about her per
  14. Hi all, I know I'm only 15, and I realize I have a long way to go before I find love, but that doesn't stop me from wanting it. For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted that 'special someone,' but now, I feel as if I'll never find that person. Heck, I'm a loner at school, so who would ever even notice me? No one. As hard as I try to talk to people, or to make friends, I only seem to make people mad or annoy them. I've even tried to lay low, and wait for someone to come to me. None of this works, and I'm tired of it! Am I so unlovable that people can't even stand to look at me? My own
  15. Ever since I started dating my boyfriend, his step mom has not liked me. She is still friends with my boyfriend's ex, and she has spread all kinds of nasty rumors about me and told her. Rather than being a responsible adult and not believe the bitter graveling of a jealous ex, she sends my boyfriend an angry email telling him all the lies. As this point in time, I had only met my boyfriend's dad and step mom once and had spent about one hour at their house. As I left, I could tell something was wrong and that they didnt like me. Well, when I heard about the rumors I was really upset and was re
  16. We just keep getting pounded . Almost ready for a minor crack up here . Today my stepdad was diagnosed with skin cancer which was removed from two places today . My MIL recently had a mastectomy for cancer. I took in my two polydactyls for their vaccines yesterday and I have to give gabapentin to the one to keep him calm . It took him all day to recover from the gabapentin but now he seems to be pretty down and out from the triple vaccines. It sometimes happens I know but I called the vet office again and they told me to keep an eye on him to see if he’s eating and drinking and if he is he
  17. So when I was a bit younger my dad remarried, and I met my step moms niece, who is the same age as me and lives in London (I live in the West Midlands). We’ve always had a special connection with each other and basically grew up together, but after we both recently attended her mothers wedding in Portugal , I realised that she may be my soul mate, as we are perfect for each other. Since then I have not been able to stop thinking about her and it’s killing me. I want to say something to her but I’m not very confident and she may find it weird. Technically we are not related at all by blood and
  18. I was meant to be getting married in 6 weeks and it has all gone horribly wrong. My fiancee and me had a big bust up last Friday with him now saying that he wants us to split up. I have serios issues with men you see as a direct result of an abusive step Dad and previous partners. Men basically scare me and I find it hard to let them get close to me, when they do I find myself saying hurtful things in order to push them away from me. I have made contact with a councillor inorder to get this problem of mine sorted. Has anyone else ever had any of these issues? Thanks very much for liste
