I love my husband so much but I cannot stand his 26 year old daughter!!! What a nightmare! I cannot begin to tell you the things that she has done to us for the past 3 years. It has taken that long for my husband to start coming to his senses about her. It is still very hard. She is lazy, sloppy, selfish, manipulative, sneaky, nosey, greedy and a user, just to name a few of her personality traits. It is so true what one person said in this group, we are suffering because in their previous marriage the behavior was so disfunctional and disgusting and now wife number 2 has to deal with the aftermath of the monsters that have been created! Ugh! I'd like to slap the stuffing out of her! Only stepMoms who go thru this really know what it's like. It's awful. Just wanted to get my story started. Will post more soon. It's so good to be in a place where other people understand what you are going thru. I also would like to add that HATE is a very strong word. I do not hate this young woman. Right now, I dislike her very, very much. I don't think I actually hate anyone. Unfortunately - that is the title of the Board. I have hopes for her that she will become a more kind, caring and sensible person as she grows older. I mean for goodness sake - in 4 years she will be 30 years old. She can't keep going down this road of bumming around trough life, taking money from us, and not doing anything but complaining. You would not beleive some of the things that she has done.
