Why re- marriage is so hard
I've said it before that the main issue in my opinion with second marriages with kids involved is having another woman who gets to tell or even ask your husband what to do.
Even if there is no real drama...."normal" marriages don't involve another woman or another man in the picture.
so BM decided to "bill" DH for all medical expenses she incurred over the year....he owes half. So he sends her $700. No receipts just a list of amounts divided by 2. Okay whatever.....annoying that she waits all year. Then the next day he sends his 1k in CS. Obviously fine.
but here is the kicker....skids are on a month to month cell plan. SD shows up yesterday and says "mom said you have to pay my cell phone bill this month" I'm like WTF. DH snaps back at her something like "oh really, I don't think I get to be told what to do". So he goes in SDs room and comes out 10 minutes later and says nothing to me. I check the bank account this morning and sure enough he paid it.
in my opinion he should have just said "yes boss" because what is the point of snapping back if you are just going to pay it anyway.
he has paid his fair share this month and sent already $1700 just this week to BM but I guess that's not enough.
