I came to Australia 8 months ago from America to marry the man I'd been in love with and lived with in Texas for almost two years. When I got here we lived with my husband's 60 year old brother for 6 months, as well as my husband's 17 year old daughter.
My husband hadn't seen any of his family in 6 years. Our first big conflict came when the daughter, who is almost 18 years old and won't do anything to better herself, found a 16 year old boyfriend and my husband felt it was right to set her up so she could have sex with her friend in her own room. Because I objected strongly the brother planted it in my husband's head that I was jealous of my step daughter and "in competition" with her. So my husband jumped all over me. Telling me I'm in another world now and things are different here and I was wrong.
Of course that devestated me, made me doubt myself and everything I've ever stood for. So I went to the internet cafe and researched permissiveness in parents and the effects on children and brought confirmation back that it is not good to allow immature children to do anything they want.
Apparently that wasn't even considered by my husband, even tho' he acted like he read it.
My stepdaughter told my husband's family and my husband that she wanted to get a job and a life here in Australia, she's from New Zealand, so we spent a lot of money we could have used to build our house getting her set up in a home so she 'could' find work. She's done nothing but stay on the internet and sleep all day. Well, till recently, now she's going back to New Zealand because she didn't really want to work, she wanted all daddy could and would give her, and until I caught her out on her 6, 3, 2 and 1 hour phone calls to a guy in Sydney she was doing whatever she wanted when she wanted and smirking at me and my husband refused to see she was not nice to me behind his back. When I talked to her about the dangers of strangers on the internet I told her that I was only doing it because I cared. She flippantly said, "Well, don't care about me!
I told him about the phone calls. I've told him about the faces made at me and the snide little remarks and he never said a word to her. Yet he will jump at me about short phone calls to his own family that I make.
No matter what his brother does, he was 'very' rude and mean to me, and what his daughter does, he does not say a word to either of them. It's like he either loves them too much to talk to them, or he doesn't care that much about me that he would rather jump me than them.
I don't understand why it's so easy for me to be in the wrong instead of dealing with the wrong 'they' do. HELP
