I'll try to keep this brief. My stepdaughter has major issues with me being a part of her life, she refuses to be respectful and even acknowledge me when I speak tp her, she's 13 now but I've been in her life since she's 6, and this has always been the case. Now I'm fed up and have explained if she can't speak(hi and bye) and be respectful when she comes over then she can't come over. She chose to stand her ground and stay away. This is hurting my husband because of course he wants to be a more integral part of his daughters life but wants to respect my feelings and thinks she should respect me as well. The issue, he will make agreements with her mother to give her extra money that we don't have that's actually taking away from bills because of his guilt. The other part is he did this all behind me back. How do I help him work through his guilt without sacraficing my integrity? How can I trust him (there were already trust issues, most of which were behind him doing things like this with/for his daughter and her mom. I caught him talked to him and asked if he thought i was being unreasonable or unfair about this, he claims no, but continues to do things to violate my trust and make me reevaluate the progress I though we'd made. What do I do?
