I am trying to heal from the six mth A my H had. I found out four mths ago. We do not have any extra money after bills and living expenses. My step son who has never had any rules got into trouble with the police, he is 15. He also got a girl who is 17 pregnant. He does not get along with his mom who has let him do anything he wants when he wants. When he is at our home he does not talk back to us because we never let him do that. He goes by our rules which are very tough for him since his mom lets him do anything. He doesn't come over much because of this. Any way his mom says he needs counseling because of everything going on and because she has so much trouble with him. We have always carried health insurance on him and his sister. It will not pay for first 600 of counseling and then only 50% after that. His mom wants us to pay for half even though the trouble is between her and him. He talks freely with me and seems to be dealing quite well. Am I being selfish for not wanting to pay for them to get along when I have told them for years that he needs rules. By the way I also have 15 yr old son that has lived by my rules and is doing great. I feel like I am being punished for the fact that his mom has always wanted to be his best friend and my H has never been able to stand up to her. By the way we haven't been in counseling except at church due to the expense. It's hard to be objective at this time in my life so any input would be helpful.
