YES! I have been with my bf for over 3 years. We have both been married before (him twice) and neither of us are anxious to get married, but we're fully committed to each other and a life long relationship with each other. He has 2 boys, ages 9 and 4. The 4yr old and I get along great, but the 9yr old and I have our issues and I definately feel resent for him and he does for me. Our issues seem to stem from me feeling that he gets in the way of my relationship with his dad, and he feels I get in the way of his relationship with his dad.
Have you paid close attention to what behaviors are triggering your feelings and what your actual feelings are? The behaviors are just symptoms and you can only treat them so much. You need to understand your emotions being triggered by the behaviors and then you can begin to find resolution. I could chat with you for days about this subject....
