I am 5 months pregnant with my first child. I am scared and nervous and unsure about the future and my stability and how to care for my precious baby. My husband is a child himself, acting like an 18 year old. He is an addict and currently using. He can only think of himself and seems incapable of realizing the gravity of the situation. He is taking money from our accounts, lying to me about anything and everything, arguing, hiding and being defensive. Not to mention, trying to blame me for all of the problems in our marriage. According to him I am a royal B****. Is it possible that I am the delusional one? That he is innocent of all I see and hear? I know one thing, I am very protective of my unborn daughter's life and future and he is jeopardizing it.

Ah, thank you. I would love to be treated like royalty or at least a princess. I hope that this magical moment he meets her and realizes he needs to grow up will happen. I hear from a lot of people that this happened with their spouses. HOWEVER, I know that his addictions will always be a problem and will always show themselves in someway. Even if he realizes he needs to grow up and take some responsibility, he may not be able to because he is an addict.

well, he has been an addict as long as I have known him. Luckily I don't have other children with him because he is like a child. I also have a dog who is like another child. Often I feel like the only ADULT in the house. It puts a lot of pressure on me.

it seems like you care alot about your childs future and he seems to not see the sacrafice a parent should take to care for their child. he does not seem like a stabe asset in your childs life and it would be much easier on the child and you to realize that sooner than later. and you most definitely should be treated like royalty!
