  • He doesn't sound like a man I'd want to marry.

  • If he actually said that he thought he could change you, I'd give the ring back and go my separate way. You either love someone for who they are or you don't - going into a relationship hoping things get better over time doesn't work. You're right - you're not their mom, and it doesn't sound like he wants to be a parent, he wants you to do it. That's not fair to you or the children.

  • RUN! Do you really want to spend the rest of your life in this type of situation? Its obvious that your eyes are wide opened so do yourself a favor and run now before its too late...

  • Do you really want to spend your life being his cleaning lady? He is using you for live in cleaning and child care, and I would guess "benefits" as well. He keeps telling you that he'll find someone who will do things better than you. Personally, I'd tell him to do just that because I'm done.

    You will find someone to appreciate you for you, not your cooking and cleaning abilities. It might be difficult for a while, but you deserve so much better. Take a chance on you.

  • You should sit down with him and tell him exactly how you feel. Hopefully he will respect you and your feelings. If not then you need to do what you feel is best for you. I think if you were to decide to leave it may take a little while, but this guy will defintely see all that you do not only for him but for the children. It sounds like he is just taking you for granted. Give him the chance first to listen to you and how you feel, if he still does not change then you need to do what makes you happy. You deserve more, and if this guy is not willing to meet you half way then you need to move on. It takes two to make a relationship work and he needs to be willing to work together with you, not against you.

  • Run at the speed of a baby cheetah during feeding time. He says you will change and he expects you to take care of his kids while he lays around and when you think about it does he want a life partner or someone he can force to take care of his kids? I would ask him how this is going to change or improve your life after I would sit down and ask myself is it right I should take care of someone else's kids without them helping and is it really a loss because you are deserving of someone who pays their way like you do and works as hard to make you their equal as you do for them.

  • OMG!!! Leave that guy right away. He is using you as a slave. He's never gonna marry you. Don't be a fool. Go and find someone who actually lives his life and love you and don't use you as a slave!!! I am sure you are young and attractive and if you pay the bills it means you have money to keep an own house. Why on the Earth you let him do this with you? :-O Come on, Girl:) You are better than this guy!!! Rock on!!!
