My husband is older than me by 17 year we have to children 7 and 8 . His daughter is 4 years younger than me and hates me as does her mother. They pushed my husband into babysitting all the time. When I was pregant his grandson kept punching my stomach. He smeared fecus all over my home. My had worked away for a while and it was bliss not to have the worry of his grandson hitting my kids who are much smaller. My husband can't se that he does any wrong. I am also in very poor health and struggling to work and raise my own kids. He does not seem to care that I can't cope with his grandchildren as well. I love my husband but feel often that it would be better to leave.i have no one to talk to as his daughter has his family and him thinking I just don't like the grandchildren. I suppose I don't because I cannot trust the boy around my kids. I also have caught him stealing. I feel very sad and trapped.

You knew when you married this man that he had children and grandchildren, and you clearly knew this when you had your children with him. He is their grandfather, and clearly wants to be involved with his grandchildren, as he has a right to be. Have you sat down and talked to him about exactly what you have said to us? About dealing alone and not coping? About feeling that you want to leave because of this issue? About feeling sad and trapped?
