Nomorehappy Posted August 13, 2017 Share Posted August 13, 2017 Hi everyone. New here. Looking for support as I've realized my seven year relationship is not what I want anymore. A little background, my partner has an ex wife and child from his first marriage. I'm sure that right there says a lot about what I'm going through. I'm sure the other question everyone will ask is - what is wrong with you, you knew exactly what you were getting into and still went through with this for 7 years. But, there's more to it. I would say the first 5 or so years were good. We had a lot of issues, mostly with his ex and child and everything that comes with being in those relationships. But we were good. We worked through it. Then, he became obsessed with trying to get his child to leave her mother and live with him. He devotes every waking minute to making this happen. Sure, this might seem normal in this situation, but it's not. He wants that child to be exactly like him and nothing like her mother. He gets mad at her when he feels she's acting like her mother (to the point of making her cry). He gets mad at the child when she chooses/favors her mom over something. He thinks it's his ex influencing her, but meanwhile, the kid probably likes her mom. Big deal. Well to him it is. Anyways, I'm sick of his anger. I'm sick of his actions. He takes his frustrations out on me, but expects me to take it because I'm supposed to be his supportive partner. My goal is to save money so I can leave. Things won't get better. It's over.
