hi. i want another child. I really want for my son to have a sib. he's already 7 1/2 and i am over 40. my hubby says i am always angry at him and we have a crappy marraige. I am angry because of the difficulty of knowing my son will have no sibs and how quiet it is in his world unless we arrange playdates all the time. i don't know how to be happy with a guy who offers no clarity about how long we would need to have a great marraige before he'd agree to look into adoption or fostering. it's like taking a leap of faith for me while i am so resentful and my son gets older and older. please help

BTW: husband was very jealous of all the attention the new baby got. . . and our marraige suffered as he was always wanting to downplay how attached i should be. . .meanwhile resenting my parenting. I didn't get a lot of help from him, and his mother(he's an only) used a lot of emotional blackmail on our young baby and toddler on up to present. she is a tough lady, and i have had to discuss her reactions to my hubby. for ex. she threatened immediately to leave while our 2 yr old son cried for us to not go out overnite one evening. .... i was appalled while hubby just thinks she is out of line, but giggles about her harshness and asks me what i want him to do about it. . . .she often tells our son not to cry(he rarely does anyway) and is generally very brash and bossy. this has seriously strained our marraige.
