My stepkids are ruining my marriage

I have been with my husband for almost 9 years. When we met, his kids were 3, 5 and 10. The oldest has graduated and left the house but the younger two live with us half time.

Talked to the Skid last night. He was on a rant about the Sperm Idiot.

After the wedding we dropped the Skid off with the Sperm Idiot the next AM(Thurs) on our way to drop my niece off at the airport.

I was so angry yesterday. It was my older stepson's birthday. He turned 15.

Has your wicked Stepmother been beating you again today darlings?

OK, this has never been said because I don't even raise my voice to skids.

BUT... I have always believed in the power of multiple, very subtle messages over sledgehammer questions/comments.
