I am the mother of two and a stepmother to one (I distinguish just for clarity). My husband and I have been married for almost 9 years and my stepson lives here every other week for 7 days at a time and comes here everyday after school) - for those wondering he is 13 now.
In December 2007 my husband started to have a modification done on child support against his ex-wife. She was upset because she would lose her new car. Yes that is what I deal with. My stepson; since then, has been acting completely differently because his mom talks bad about me all the time. He now cusses at me, hits and swings at me, talks down and back to me. He tells people I hit him and plays his parents against one another.
Today my husband went to a mediation meeting about the child support where his ex-wife told the person that I abused Dillon and she was thinking about having me brought up on charges. She says I cause stress in his situation.
I love my children (all three of them), I love my husband, Heck I love the dog. I just don't know how I can put up with anymore and I almost wonder if I should divorce to get my kids out of the situation.
Please help...ANY ADVISE would be welcome. THANKS
