divorce when you have a step child
Hi I decided to join the forum because I am at my wits end at what to do with my life. I really want a divorce and am so unhappy in my marriage but I'm scared to loose a lot of time with my daughter. My husband is very controlling and gets angry if i don't do what he says and hates it when I disobey him he's also been verbally abusive calling me selfish when I say I want to sleep instead of engage in sexual activity, he s also talked about doing things with other women. My worry is that I have no proof but I'm not a perfect parent and he has security cameras that he watches us through and I'm not sure who's favor thats in.
One of my biggest issues is my step daughter he has stated in the past that he would treat me differently if I was more affectionate towards her. But for me this is hard to do because she is constantly bulling my daughter she hits her tells her to shut up, calls her dumb, dumb baby and recently she has started calling her a bitch. my bio daughter still loves her tho despite the bullying. If I do get a divorce I'm wondering if my step Childs treatment towards my biological child will effect custody.
his daughter is 7 and the child we have together is 4
