My husband and I have 7 kids between us. I have 3 he has 3 and we have one together. The problem is that he thinks he can say anything to my kids, take things away from them and treat them like his and the other kids slaves but if I say one wrong thing to his kids then he threatens to leave. I have gotten to the point that I really don't care if he does or not. He hasn't been like a husband in more than 3 years. we are more like roommates than anything else. He never consults me about decisions with the kids. We have not slept together in almost 4 years. and we have only been together for 6 years
He treats his kids like royalty and mine like scum. His 13 yr old son couldn't be found one day after school because he was under the bleachers with a girl and they weren't studying! He goes and buys him a cell phone as a reward. this was a year ago. I have a 12 y old daughter and she wants a phone now. He told her he will not get her one but he gets his 10 yr old daughter one for her birthday. My 10 yr old son has to pick up his stepbrother's dirty underwear and if he doesn't do it he gets grounded for a week. There is just so much that happens i really cant type it all.
Here is my problem....I only get a small check each month for my disability and dont have the money to go out on my own
Do i just suck it up and take this crap or do i get the courage to get out???????
