It's difficult to know where to begin, so I shall start with some background information. My DH and I have been married for two years and have been together for five. I was a widow and my DH was single. This is a second marriage for us both and we have seven adult children between us who are all living their own lives. My DH has six grandchildren. We are both over sixty years of age - I am retired and my husband is due to retire at the end of this year. We are very happily married and, up until recently, we have had good relationships with our respective stepkids.
I’m losing patience. Urgh! Need to vent!!!
Step son who is 30 years old and his son who is 12 lives with us. He has a decent paying job. Works overtime. He DOES NOT pay rent or help with the utilities. He buys food for himself and his son. He doesn’t clean up after himself. He and his son rarely does any housekeeping. He lets his 12 year old son smoke cigarettes. He comes home from work and asks his dad what’s for dinner! I thought to myself you gotta be kidding me.
Hello everyone! I am new to the site, although I have been reading others post for several weeks and let me say how good it feels to not feel alone in being pushed past the breaking point with SK. Its a breath of fresh air knowing I am not the only person who feels like this! That being said, there's a topic I haven't found much reading on and I'd like some advise so here it goes:
Has anyone had their step children lie about them to other family members? Then the other family members shun you?
