  • If you can't tolorate the family that your step children are born into, I would reconsider marring their father. Their family is their family. And as they have always been around, they come first, not you

  • Yip...my MIL wanted a gold bracelet for Christmas, then she gets one, and doesn't like it.. She returns it and asks for a check for the bracelet she wanted to buy.

    Gotta love it.

  • My future MIL is crazy (yes, I see that you are talking about steps but since someone else is complaining about their MIL I thought I would jump in lol. She tells me I am not good enough for her son because I have a dd from another relationship!

  • Not personally but my BF did (my BM was surprisingly queit this holiday). My BF's stepsons Bio-mom INSISTED on having him for Christmas..... and got him nada. Not even a freaking candy bar! She told him she would give him $50 to spend when she got his child support check (which she will never actually do). At least he got a nice Christmas at his Dad's the next weekend but for the poor child to be forced to stay with her and not even get one damn thing for Christmas... she got gifts from her boyfriend and he wwas empty handed.

  • It is sad that the child didn't get anything for Christmas but if it was between going with his step dad (who, I guess is not with his mom anymore, as he is now with you) and being with his mom, he should be with his mom. Times are hard and while my dd has never gone without Christmas presents, I had to have her birthday party a week late because her dad didn't pay child support on time. I make enough to cover our bills and the things we need but the child support is where I get all our extras.
