I am at the end of my rope with my step son. He is rude,obnoxious and totally disobient. I am ready to end my marriage over him. whenever he is in trouble or things arent his way he throws a fit. He is more than anyone one person can handle. I am truely ready to leave my husband over this. I dont want the next 11 yrs like this. NOt to mention if he never moves out then. My husband always takes his side, and says that I always ride him, and that I am unfair. But give me a break, if your bad and I punish you, I expect you to listen and do it. HE NEVER DOES BUT I am the BAD GUY

Stand your ground. It is your house that means your rules. Take one last talk with your husband about it and that if things don't change then he will have to see his son other places. I know it seems hard what I am saying. But if you can't be happy in YOUR home that is not good. A home is a safe place. I am a step mom too and boy have I had my battels. But no one can make the rules in my house but me and I don't care what anybody thinks if it is hard. Remember you have to be two and he has to take you first. Wish you all the best.

Unfortunately the house we live in is my husbands. he had it before we married. Second I already know that my husband picks his kid over me. I dont blame him for that. I know if it comes down to it. mykids are first. Ijust wish life was easier.

This is how it is at my house also. I'm also at my wit's end!! I'm ready to end the relationship too. I can't take this for the rest of my life. I am strict with my kids, and I expect ALL the kids to follow the 'house' rules!! I don't think that I'm unfair. My kids get punished way more than his. Yet, he seems to think I pick on his precious kids. It's crap. And I'm fed up. I really can't take it anymore. If we are going to make this relationship work we need to stand together as a team, not be at eachothers throats. But we haven't gotten there yet, and don't know if we ever will. I know I'm tired of trying already. I'm not going to have any hair left in a year if things keep up the way they are. I don't have any miracle solutions for you. I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone! Good Luck. And if you figure anything out...please tell me!!!
