It sounds a little like you are trying to compete with his kids and that's not good. His kids will ALWAYS come first, period, as it should be. He is not a bad person for that. Something you need to consider (what men think about when marrying a women with kids) it's not just HIM you are marrying, it is his kids as well. A lot of what you are feeling can be hormornal which is understandable. Try to understand where he is coming from as well - he feels guilty for going out and having fun and his kids aren't there. That tells me he does have some separation issues and guilt over his failed marrage he needs to work out. But be supportive of him - don't condemn him or leave him because he is trying to do the best he can with his kids... Try to find a counselor who can help... Good luck!

Hi, it is understandable that you feel like this but like the person in the last post said he is only trying to the best for his kids. It would be nice if you could spend some time alone together though on your relationship. Have you tried explaining how you feel to your husband? Think of it another way also, at least you know he is a good Dad and from the sound of it he will be a great Dad to your little one so you have no worries there. Try suggesting to him that you should have time to yourselves to enjoy each others company like you used to and set aside regular activities or days to do this. Children do put a strain on adult relationships because any good parent will put their childrens needs first. If this is your first child you will soon be able to understand his devotion to his kids.

I try so much so all this won't get to me but it's hard i forost put on my post that sometimes when he picks his his kids up thats almost everyday they are with us sometimes a friend of his will come over to the house and he will leave with his friends and leave me to take care the kids while his out drinking with his friend i guess he forgets he brought them to the house they don't come over to spend to spend time with him and he leaves them to me yea he leave with his friend without telling me... but i can't go to a friends alone he will tell me to take his little girl alongif he spends time alnoe with friends why not with me yea i have talked to him about this but he says that things are not gonna change I miss the person he was before he says that if he wants to spend time alone with his friends he will and when he wants to I don't think you all understand me and wont but thats ok Thanks anyway for the advice....................................:)

I think we are understanding fine. You wanted sympathy for being put second to his kids. Now this friend thing comes up and we won't understand? If there is a problem, try counseling. If you are looking for sympathy, try elsewhere...
