My teenage daughter has never taken to my new partner. My partner moved in with us and were living together for nine months until she left to live with her father recently. Now we have her home for weekends fortnightly and I am still feeling torn when the three of us are together. When it's the two of us (my daughter and I) she is happy. When it's my partner and I, we are happy but when it's the three of us together there is tension. I know my daughter would be happy if I ended my relationship and she has me all to herself but is it really fair to succumb to a child's wishes and put your life on hold until the child decides it's the right time, right partner! I am feeling exhausted and fed up with trying to make it work but I don't think ending the relationship is the right way to go either as much as I feel it would simplify my life. If anyone has experienced this problem, I would love to know how you handled it.
