Question....Overgenerous DH and spolied rotten SS14.
I remember as a kid going through the Montgomery Ward catalog as soon as it came out and circling the things I wanted for Xmas. Now kids have "amazon wish lists". SS14 does NOT make a list for xmas or birthday ever. DH has a hard time finding SS gifts for xmas/birthday. The reason?? If SS14 wants something there is NO waiting till his birthday/xmas SS gets it NOW. SS has EVERYTHING a kid could want.
DH suffers from DDG AKA Divorced daddy guilt and BM who is rich can buy SS the best of the best. WE are not rich BUT DH feels he needs to help pay for certain "big ticket items" when BM asks or she will tell SS DH is cheap( BM will). Or when SS asks DH to buy him something DH feels since BM spends $$$ on SS DH needs to also. This does not help that SS14 is a rotten spoiled entitled brat who can only think of himself.
Here is my question...Would this bother you? It bothers me but don't know what I can say since DH is not asking me to help pay for anything?
I will tell you its not ANY of my money that goes into this BUT has effected our lifestyle. Meaning except for SS DH is a cheap penny pinching person. When we go out to dinner(rare) DH will order the cheapest thing on the menu and we have to use a coupon. Oh I always pay for my dinner too. Vacations are rare and only if we can get a good deal. I will buy DH little gifts for no reason BUT DH almost never does me. Valentines day SS14 gets the same gift as me.... Candy/card from DH. Easter SS14 gets a gift but nothing for me.
