I am a stepmother who is trying desperatelt to respect the wishes of my husband to be apathetic towards my 18 year old stepson. By nature I am a mother and nurturer so this has been very difficult. My stepson has been home from college for 1 week and my husband and I are fighting about him again. I think that I am more frustrated at my husband for wanting me not to care about him although i understand his reasoning. Most of the times that I have reached out to him have ended in disappointment and have not led to a closer relationship between me and my stepson. I just have a really hard time living in the same house with a person who does not love me. And I can't talk to my husband about my stepson when things bother me because he takes things to the extreme and wants to SOLVE like a typical man and that means he gets angry at his son and says things like, "okay, he can't live here anymore then...." What my husband doesn't understand is that will only make things worse. I'm rambling because this is all just too much right now.
