Advice on how to approach my husband & his daughters relationship? – Is this normal? I am currently in a relationship with a man I love dearly. We have been together for over two years. He has two children from a previous marriage, as do I, and his eldest (12 years) decided she was going to live with us as she wanted to spend more time with her father. I love his daughter like she is my own but as of late I have been picking up on a few things that just seem odd for a 12 year old to do. She is constantly asking her father to sleep in her bed. She is constantly smothering her dad with kisses and always right there when we are trying to talk. When she goes to bed she always has to come out up to 5 times with excuses as she can hear us having our time and laughing. She is always telling him she loves him and asking him if he is OK. I can tell he is uncomfortable and doesn’t know how to handle this. He thinks it’s ok to sleep in same bed though, but being 12 she is developing and to me it seems creepy? I have tried to discuss it with him and all that happens is he gets cranky at me for speaking badly about his daughter. Which I am not I am just concerned and this is having a major impact on our relationship. I am just trying to make him aware that this is quite odd behaviour. Every now and then I understand but constantly every hour of every day seems weird to me? I need help and advice on how to discuss this with him? Or am I just being silly? Am I the jealous one overreacting? I am at a loss and don’t even want to be here anymore. I feel like a third wheel in my own home now and my partner thinks it’s of my own fault. I am ready to walk out the door but I love him dearly and want it to work. Please help in asking advice from any of your likers. I don’t know where to go from here.
