This is some really CRAPPY s*** I HAD to do to my stepkids

I have been with my dh for almost five years now.  He has two children.  The children are always respectful to me, but they are never hot nor cold...just luke warm.  That is fine with me, they have a mom and a dad I am just dad's wife.  I am good to them and treat them well but beyond that I force nothing.

Lately the 15-year-old girl has gotten snippy with her dad. Hey, not my kid not my problem.

Well they ended up getting into a heated argument and she yells "maybe if you had never had an affair with the homewrecker we'd still be a family"

Wait. WHAT? I didn't meet dh until their divorce was FINAL!

Dh asks her where in the world did she get that idea from and of course

BM!

I sat down with both of them and showed them I had not even met their dad when they divorced and then I did the unthinkable...I was just so mad (insert you are blah blah blah here)

I showed them their own mother's engagement announcement...in it her then fiance talks about how, where and WHEN they met....well, they were not only were dh and her still married BUT LIVING TOGETHER

so it was her that cheated.

It's fine to defend yourself, but you didn't have to down their mother in the process. Don't stoop to her level.

my reputation is important to me and no way was I going to have them believe for the rest of their lives that is why their marriage broke up

I think the BM brought it on herself by slandering your relationship with your husband. At least the 15 year old is old enough to hear the truth I don't know how old the other child is. Now she can go take it up with her mother, and hopefully she can move forward on her ill feelings towards you and her dad

And how did that go? What kind of a reaction did you get?

That is truly laughable.

I would have defended myself but not sure I would have pointed out BM was actually the cheater. I realize she did that but two wrongs don't make a right.

My dd's father tells our dd way too much and has painted me in a bad light at times. He's such a hypocrite too. Smh I always explain things on my end but never throw her dad under the bus. As much as I'd like to at times...

I understand, I guess the best thing would be to just clear your name and not tell the truth about Mom but that is Mom's own fault.
