I am 26. Never been married. Have no children of my own. Never wanted any children. I made ONE exception and now I have been with my soul mate for almost two years. I never dreamed there was someone so perfect for me.... except for his situation. He has a crazy obsessive compulsive ex wife he's trying to help raise three (very very good) kids with 7, 11, & 16. I love his kids but when his kids are around he goes from this fun loving playful man I want to spend my life with to an absolute hurtful/disrespectful jerk to me. He is still loving and playful with his children. I've tried to talk about it but he says I'm jealous of his kids and I make everything up. When the kids are with us, I do everything for/with them more than any dad's gf would. I love spending time with them until their father is around. I hate having them see how awful he treats me. Then the second they leave, he is back into the man I want to marry. It's hard for me to want the kids around. I get stressed out easily. And look forward to when they leave. What's bad is that they are great kids and I love being around them as long as their dad isn't around. It isn't fair to me or them. He had an insane marriage and an even worse divorce. I just feel like when his kids are around, he treats me like he treated their lying cheating mother. Am I crazy for feeling this way or have any advice?
