“I love him but I’m struggling to accept his kids”

Our agony aunt, Mary Fenwick, offers a new perspective on whatever is troubling you

self

Q I’m six years younger than my husband and I’m having issues accepting my stepchildren. I’ve never wanted kids of my own but I’ve come to realise that his children will be part of my life. I’m slowly rewriting my future, which involves them, but the youngest is badly behaved and driving a huge wedge between my husband and me.

I feel lost. I love my husband very much, but I feel like he’s stretching me thin, for a life that I wasn’t really prepared for. We’ve had several discussions about what’s going on, but he doesn’t seem to understand the underlying point – that it’s him I have the biggest issue with because he’s the dad. Name supplied
