All this time I thought he was such a blessing (not that he isn't, but his intentions were not what I thought) for picking up the slack while I'm trying to adjust to my new life, but the truth always comes out… I don't know if that was how he was raised, or if life made him who he is, but I refuse to subject my (our) daughter to such antiquated gender roles/expectations, joking (he's alluded to such things far too often for me to believe that is the case) or not.
I pray my (our) daughter is never made to feel as badly as he makes me feel at times, especially by someone who promised to love her forever. I keep trying to forget how my feelings/beliefs are disregarded (cohabitation, my "children", churchgoing/day of rest, laundry, blessings…) and, it is my fault for allowing it to happen, but it ends now!
And, these silent treatments need to stop! They're childish, infuriating and simply not productive.
