I am in a relationship with a man who has younger children. No matter how hard I try, I just can't like his children. I have children of my own (grown) so I do know about raising kids. I can be polite to his children and endure their visits but the thought of having to take care of them for any length of time has me seriously considering my future with this man. I love him but not his children. I don't want to be their stepmother but I do want to be his wife. He knows I struggle with his children but he thinks that I will "get used" to them and learn to love them like he does. I don't see that ever happening. I cringe when we have his kids and I try to make sure I have to work the days they are there. I can't possibly be the only woman on earth who has gone through this. Can anyone offer advice?
