Parents and wife cant stand each other,Submitted by cmw on Fri, 05/25/2012 - 8:24am
I married a woman 2 years ago who had 3 kids from a previous marriage.. ages today are sd7, sd6, and ss5.
We dated a year before getting married, so it has been 3 years total. My family did not come to the wedding, but honestly i did not expect them to. I was previously married for 11 years before this and have a bd6 from that marriage.
Anyway, my family and my wife do not like each other, and apparently never will. We live 8 miles away from each other btw.
I know that my stepkids annoy the hell out of my family when they are around (they are demanding and very competitive with each other for attention), and they do not consider my wife to be my kids' stepmom, just some "whore" I'm with for sex. Seriously.
Neither side has ever sincerely attempted to make ammends or call a truce. There has been forced fake shows of friendliness, but it always is quickly shot down by any random drama. So presently my wife cant stand my parents because they have replaced my role in the family with my ex-wife (seriously) and my parents cant stand my wife because they blame her for breaking up my previous marriage or any chance of us getting back together. This is not true however... my previous marriage was not good, but i stuck it out for years because I was raised in a christian home where divorce is a sin.
There are many many details to this, but I dont have anyone to seek advice from on this.
I hope this follows this sites criteria, as 4 stepkids and 2 step parents are involved.
Thanks for your time.
