Don't Know What To DoI have been married for 5 years (my second marriage - his first)
I have a son from my first marriage that is 12 and we have 2 small boys together - The problem is that my husband cannot deal with my 12 year old - I know the boy can be difficult but my husband just goes to the extreme with everything. - If he does not do his homework and his grades suffer - we agree that he needs to get back on track - so we puss him - then if my husband comes home from work (he gets home before me) and sees that my son has slacked off - he yells and sends him to his room - his new angle is to just avoid him all together - he comes home form work and locks himself in our bedroom and watches TV all night - when I get home it is very stressful and I feel stuck in the middle.
He now tells me that he is "not happy" and has not been for some time - he says he does not want to divorce but his actions tell me different. I know I am not perfect and don't ask that of him either - I try to do everything so as not to bother him but the stress is getting to me and my passive/aggressive comments only escalate our problems
I am lost
