“My husband rejects my daughter”
Love, relationship and family
“I would love to find a way to get my husband back to normal with my daughter.”Updated on January 22, 2021, Sarah
We are a blended family. I have a daughter from my first marriage, and with my second husband, we had a boy. My husband was always lovely to my daughter until our son arrived.
Now he ignores her, and when he talks to her it is to order her to do a job or to criticize what she says. He either doesn't listen to her anymore, or jokes heavily (he calls her calculus). He claims that our son and daughter cannot get along, not only because they are not of the same sex, but also because they are too apart in age (seven years of difference). I have suffered from this situation for a long time, so has my daughter.
And I don't think my son dares say anything. I often imagined leaving him, but he also has qualities that always make me hesitate. My husband's mother couldn't stand my daughter either. I know that before me, my husband had a relationship with someone who had two children from a first marriage. She also didn't get along with my ex-mother-in-law. For my part, I broke all relationship with her for two years, and then forgave her, shortly before she passed away.
I would love to find a way to get my husband back to normal with my daughter. I can communicate a lot to him, but I have the impression that he does not accept to see his behavior. I don't know how to do it anymore.”
