I have been a step-mom for 3yrs now and i still do not have the hang of it. My stepdaughter was 2yr when my husband and i got together and the ex-wife has had it out to make our lives horrible from the get go. Legally, our hands are tied,but my main problem is the way she talks to my husband. The ex-wife is constanly talking down to him as if he walked out of a cave yesterday, and has on mutiple Occasions cussed at him or yelled at him infromt of the 5yr old daughter! As a wife who wants nothing more then to support my husband am i just supposed to sit there and allow such disrespect to take place? I have emailed to try and let her now that such actions upset me, and don't see how it is mentaly healthy for the daughter to see her treating her father in such a manner,but the only reply i have ever gotten was a " i will talk to him how i damn well please!". I need help, advice, and some one to let me know i'm not the only step parent struggling to not loss there mind.
