Before our marriage we never had favortism issues. Since being married, I feel my son is treated harsher by my husband (my son is 11); and my stepdaugher is allowed to get away with some same basic situations. The relationship between my husband & his daughter is ideal; very loving, respectful. When he & I are in an argument she plays us against each other and turns on the charm to her Father. I then become the bad guy. My husband feels I am lecturing, blah blah blah, like to argue. My son at times gets the raw end of the deal and I feel I have to fight for him. That only causes more anger/frustration between my husband and I. I cannot stand the feelings of favortism. My stepdaughter has recently moved in with us full time from her mother's house. I do like having her with us, but now I have begun feeling like I wish she would leave back to her mother's house. She is a good girl/making stupid teenager choices. My son is a good boy/getting the short end of the stick. Am I wrong to feel this way? Maybe. I need help in dealing with this issue & plus trying to save my marriage.
