I have been married 7 months and we were together 1 year before that.
We both have children from our previous marriage's including my 8 y/o daughter full time has his 9 y/o son every other week.
I have a few concerns and would like to get your opinions before I decide what to do, I was renting my home and when we were married I moved in my DH home(he owns it)
Did not see the need for a prenup at the time, however I am worried about my daughters stability as far as living in my DH home because three times in the past few months he has threatened to evict me and has told me to GTF out of his house.I called the court and there is a way he could evict me even though we are still married :(
I have been resentful ever since and I can't seem to let it go. I told him that I had more security when I was RENTING my previous house, than I do now being married to him.
He has talked about buying a house together which would be great bc then he could not hold the house over my head, and he also has an extremely large life insurance policy in which his children are the beneficiary, he has his son linked to his checking account and I am no.
Am I expecting to much??

Threatening to throw you and your child out on the street is just wrong. Its supposed to be your home, your shelter and so is he. I think you should see a marriage counselor, he has issues. I would not feel secure in your marriage either.

Sounds like you put you and your child in a corner. Sense the house was bought before you married him. It is his property not yours. You are right, unless you can convince him to sell and buy a new house. He has the upper hand.
I personally would not stay with a man who threatens to kick me out. Just because he get mad at you.
