I have been re-married for 5 years now (together for 7). I have 3 children of my own from my first marriage. My son age 20, my daughter age 18, and other daughter age 12. My husband has 3 children from his first marriage as well. Two sons age 13 and 10. And a daughter age 9. The problem is I am torn in the middle. My life is a virtual tug of war between my husband and children. We have been together 7 years and things began fairly well but as my children have aged it has gone down hill. We both have joint custody with our exes. A week on and a week off. We have our children the same week. My oldest does not do this as he lives out of the home now. But up until last year he had. I cant even explain the problems and frustrations. But how do I get my husband to make me stop trying to choose between him and my kids. Because unfortunately when push comes to shove I dont think he would like my choice. Please blended families like mine help!!!
