I have been with my husband for 7 years (married 3). He has full custody of his 3 kids from a previous marriage. He received full custody of the 3rd when the child was only a yr. The mother of these kids is a total loser. Never showed up to the court cases to fight for her children; has never paid child support stated on court orders and never calls or makes effort to see them and involved with drugs and jail frequently. Therefore the youngest believes I am his mother and thats how we've kept it so far. Recently as the 2 older kids have grown into their teen years (his daughter is 16 and oldest son is 13) we have encountered issues that I feel have broken the straw off the camel's back for me. There have been other situations that have happened prior up to now that I've dealt with and dealt with, but with finding out his daughter having sex in my home and his son telling the mother's side of the family incomplete statements or lies of me I've grown to really really not like/care about them. I've recently expressed my feelings to their father/my husband and he gets defensive and accuses me of being in the wrong. I've have gotten to a point where I want out, but feel bad because that would mean I would break up 'our' family(by this I mean we have a son together). He won't hear me out and I feel he is not engaged enough to settle the matter, but rather sweep it all under the rug. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO! I don't think I can take any more disrespectful teen years any longer. Help.
