I agree with anon 08. What are you going to do after you get married? You can't be the one the discipline all the time, and you can't over rule what he says. You two have to work together. They will be mad at you for all the decision making and be mad at him for not standing up. Also, I can guarantee that unless you start working together to discipline the kids, you won't be together too long. It will be too much of a stress on the both of you. Believe me, I know. Also, he made the kid too. You can't expect him to sit back and do nothing. Imagine what will happen if you have to leave for a few days and he has NEVER disciplined the kids. You can't say that will never happen because what if you guys have more kids. You will have to leave. The kids will NOT listen to your man and there will be problems and anger. It is not fair to him that you want him their, but not to parent the kids.
