hi i am the step mother of a 21 year old whom i think hates my guts. whenever she comes over she quietly speaks but talks and laughs with her dad. she doesn't talk to me but when i don't talk to her either her dad says that i have an attutude. when she leaves he says you are the adult but she's 21 what does that make her. this has been going on since she was 12. this issue i have had with all his kids with him saying that i don't like his kids but they don't respect me. i don't talk to them because they prefer if i didn't. i would try to make a conversation and they would just say yes or no to whatever i ask and end it. when i come in a room his daughter walks out. when i go outside she comes back in. how can i handle this. i want to end my marriage because of this.
