Hello All...wasn't sure where to post this, but I never am. I'm so frustrated and I just needed another persons perspective - I'm married, second time for both of us, and he has two children. We moved halfway across the country to live closer to his kids, I moved my job and he is unemployed and has been for several months. Now, I realize that the job market is not great, at all, and I'm trying to be patient with that. I make a decent salary, and we were able to afford a house at our new location. We do not see his kids very often, which is frustrating for me, and I'm pretty sure my stepdaughter is about ready to strangle me (pre-teen hormones I think) I'm pretty laid back with the kids, but firm on important things like homework and how the kids treat their parents (their dad, mom, step dad and myself). We are still paying FULL childsupport even though he doesn't have a job. My husband just got a part time job which will barely pay child support, but we still travel for the kid's sports a lot (almost every weekend) spending money on hotels, eating out, etc....and we have not had them with us during any of these trips. I can't spend money on myself or anything right now because money is tight, and I realize that sounds selfish, but I'm paying for EVERYTHING right now, the house, food, bills, travel....everything. I just want to go see my family, who is about 5 hours away by aircraft...I'm just so frustrated. I cook, I clean, he does help (about 30% if I were to guess) but I'm expected to do all of this stuff and he doesn't even ASK me - if I try to talk to him he blows up at me. I feel like I am being taken advantage of. If I wanted to leave, I couldn't - the house is in both of our names and I couldn't do that to his kids but I'm just so frustrated! ugh what do do???
