Can I get a private post please? Thank you.
So guys I need advice, no bashing please. My partner and I have been together nearly 8 years and have 2 children. Problem being this: his family are too controlling over how I raise my kids and criticise my home. We both work and I’ll be studying again soon. They babysit and take me to and from work which I pay the petrol for which is no problem – I like to pay my way. I won’t go into details about it all it’d take me forever. But I’m at the end of my tether now. He has never supported me with them and shrugs it off telling me to ignore it all but I can’t. I’m fighting a silent war and it’s a very thin line because we rely on them for help. I don’t have any other family to help. I’m trying to save to get me some driving lessons so transport will no longer be an issue. He gets to go out to wherever when work allows him time to do it which is no problem but I have to wait and work around his work and if I can get a babysitter if he’s working which is almost most of the time but because he works 12 hours day or night and I do shift work and have 3 days off he’s apparently more entitled to sit on his ass doing no housework and go out according to his family. He makes little time for me and the kids or housework. I’ve got so many problems I’m going through and he’s never there or he basically tells me to suck it up and get on with it. I’m in a right state of what to do. Work is hell on earth, personal and past problems, him and his family and I don’t know what to do. I can’t cope. I appreciate everything they do for us but my kids are my kids and my home is my castle and he needs to man up, guys what would you do? 😭
