that you didn't expect when you got married or started living together?
For me, I never expected that my husband would take his daughters sides over me. For myself, that was a shocker. My parents always stood up for each other no matter what we did (well maybe once or twice did I see my dad take our sides).
I didn't grow up with an understanding of steprelationships. My parents had married young and stayed together until my dad passed away. So the idea that my husband wasn't supporting me when it came to the kids was really foreign for me.
What about you? What is it that happened to you or in your family that you didn't expect when you got married to your partner or started living together?
