Being a step parent is the hardest thing I’ve ever done!
Here I am feeling hurt again because of my stepdaughter’s drama. We been married for 27 yrs, we have his children, my children and one together. They are all grown with families of their own. His girls have done hurtful things over the years, when I try to defend myself or discuss with my husband he doesn’t want to get involved and this last event became very angry with me after his daughter called crying to Daddy. I feel like my husband should defend me, I’m his wife. I have raised his children alongside mine and always tried to be loving and thoughtful. I’m the Mom who took them to cheer, went shopping for prom dresses, helped plan their weddings. Every so often they get this mean streak and I’m on the other end. When I talk to him or them about it, they turn it around saying I’m trying to make their Dad choose between me and them. After crying and arguing I let it go, forgive and forget. Just can’t seem to get over hurt this time, not sure this marriage can be saved. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks
