Is it normal to feel resentment and jealousy?

My husband asked me if I wanted to go to a crab feed (his favorite thing) I said sure! He told me he wasn't going to get my daughter (13) a ticket however because they were expensive ($65) and she doesn't even like crab. So he would get tickets just for him, me & his daughter (15). I told him well forget it then, I'm not excluding my daughter or going without her & also that they have other things to eat besides crab! I also told him that really hurt my feelings & that I would never dream of excluding his daughter from anything. Well I thought that was the end of it but nooooo, last night I get the mail, open up an envelope and see 6 tickets to the crab feed! So I asked him who the tickets were for and was told that they are for himself, his daughter and his brothers and sisters. This is all set up for the evening of Feb the 15th. OK well WOW! So he's picking up his daughter on Valentines day (lives with mother) and now has a lovely weekend planned out for his sweetheart. There relationship is already a little over the top (a 15 year old shouldn't constantly CLING onto her Daddy the way she does or both of them cry every time she leaves only to be back in 2 weeks & I could go on and on) So this whole Valentines weekend crab feed thing my daughter and I are excluded from is very upsetting! Am I being unreasonable? Am I being selfish? Am I being a b*tch? PLEASE HELP! I am so depressed and sad.

NO your not being a bitch nor selfish you have every right to feel the way you do esp if he went and bought more tickets for his whole family yeah I would be pissed but more sad cause im an emotional person. and if you already told him how you feel and hes not trying to help and its vday yeah no not cool tell him exactly how you feel!
