Is it normal that my bf makes his ex wife's adult kids his priority?
I broke up with my boyfriend last night after 4 years. He is no longer with his ex wife. He has one son with her. She has 3 adult daughters from 2 previous relationships before him. For the first 3 years of our relationship I tried to make these grown girls a part of my life because I knew how important they were to him but all three of them have been disrespectful to me for years. None of the 3 wants to see him with me - they all want him back with their mother so of course, they treat me like garbage. After 3 years of trying for peace with them, I finally told him that I cannot deal with it anymore and I don't want to be near them or associate with them anymore. I tried and I can't do it. It's not working and in the end, they aren't his children. They are her kids who want me out of the picture. I thought he respected how I felt and wanted to put our relationship first but last night he made a choice that totally showed me that he places more loyalty and devotion towards them than to me and our future - so, sadly, I had to end it. I can't play this game anymore of trying to show him I should be first if he doesn't believe it himself. They are awful. All three of them. They're all like their mother - all they do is drink, smoke weed and get arrested. I just hope one day my ex sees that we could have had a good relationship if he was able to move on from his past and give me a fair shot at a real future. Not every woman wants to be around his ex wife's family constantly.
