My wife and daughter 2
My daughter lives half of the time with me and half with her mother.
My wife did not cause the divorce. My ex wife started the divorce because she thought it just can't work anymore and doesn't seem to regret it like some of the biomothers I read about. Nor does she come on to me, or is a psycho.. She's normal.
My wife and daughter get in an argument every time they talk, and that's why my daughter wants to disengage.
But my wife thinks that's disrespectful and she should not be allowed to.
I suppose my daughter knows of the term because she googled about step families but I'm not sure, I don't know.
My wife didn't really do anything to my daughter, my daughter just rejected her from the beginning.
I don't think my ex wife is coaching her to do this, or anyone really.
