Step brother of 6 months. My mom married his dad.
So a few weeks ago in a morning I noticed my stuff in my room had moved. I told my brother (big bio brother, 23) and he didn’t take me seriously but taught me how to record my room at nights with my phone. I’ve been recording myself every night and nothing happened, so I was ready to believe that nothing had happened that night.
This weekend however, step brother came into my room at about 3:15am. He came to me with scissors, cut a small piece of my hair and left my room. It was so weird and shocking. It was a very small amount, something I likely wouldn’t have noticed. I sent the video to my siblings (brother and bio sister, 19). They told me to pack a bag immediately and picked me up and took me with them. They sent the video to parents.
Parents questioned step brother and he says he doesn’t remember doing it at all and said he was likely sleep walking and asked to see a doctor. I don’t believe him and neither do my siblings.

So, I'm 36F. My husband is 38M and we have been together 14 years. Our kids are 15M, 14F and 11M. Up until about 2 years ago my kids all had chores that they did daily but of course with them getting older, it became more of a chore for myself when trying to get them to do anything to help me out so I stopped asking. So, that's what makes me an AH, I think.
Anyways, my husband hardly ever lifts a finger when it comes to house work. He doesnt cook, clean or even take the trash out anymore. He used to all the time.
So, I hit a breaking point one day when I came home after a weekend business trip with work to a completely in shambles house. There were dirty dishes scattered and placed in various corners of my home, trash wasnt taken out, laundry was spewing over the top of our hamper, toothpaste lining the sink, etc. You get the point. I grabbed myself a nice tall glass of Crown Royal and went to my backyard, where I proceeded to sit and do nothing.
My husband and kids returned home... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am married to my husband who has a 17 year old daughter from his first marriage. We have been married for 4 years.
To get things out of the way : my husband and I started dating well after he divorced his wife.
So we have her this month because her mother was diagnosed with the big C that is floating around while it was our week with step daughter.
TMI. She started her period last Thursday and it was bad. I am talking 3 days in bed, puking, cramps of hell. I had similar symptoms when I was her age and was diagnosed way to late with endo.
By day 3 I asked her if this was normal for her and she said that she always has very bad periods, but that her doctor told her it's normal because some women are just less pain resistant. I was alarmed and told her it was absolutely not like that and her pain was not normal and she needs to get a second opinion. She asked me if I trusted my doctor and I told her yes. And she asked me if I could take her. I said of course and made an appt.

My husband and I are so incredibly furious. My husband shares a 15 year old with his ex girlfriend. They had her in high school. Ex is 30 and husband is 31. The ex never really makes good decisions and still acts like she's in high school. For most of step daughters life, she has lived with my husband. Two years ago, we had our first child together and step daughter was not happy and decided she wanted to live with her mom full time. Ex took us to court and somehow ended up getting 50/50 custody. We have tried to fight this to no avail.
We are more strict with SD and don't allow her to have boys in her room, go to parties, etc. Her mom on the other hand lets her do whatever she wants. SD was coming back to us the end of July, ex calls us and tells us her boyfriend tested positive for corona and thinks they should all self isolate together. We all agree.
My husband has been texting SD everyday to see how she's doing and she said she's tired and her muscles hurt. We think ok, she has... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don’t know why we are just fine with old media that is offensive just getting erased. It’s like we’re ignoring the shit we did in the past by erasing it and making it hard to find instead of just saying “hey, we used to be more fucked up as a society and these things were okay.” We’re painting a false image of humanity and it’s just wrong, and I hate it. It doesn’t actually help anyone to just get rid of these things, all we’re doing is raising a generation of people who don’t know that we did these things. We are keeping them ignorant instead of teaching them why these things are wrong.
Obligatory disclaimer this happened about a year ago.
So this is an ongoing issue that has driven me and my husband apart and I’m worried may threaten our marriage down the road. Looking for some unbiased responses.
I have a teenage stepdaughter (13) from my husband. She’s been living with us for 3 years now and there’s still growing pains. She doesn’t trust me fully and continues to act out against my authority in any and all forms.
So last year around this time my husband was overseas attending his uncles funeral and managing family affairs. It was just me and SD for about 3 weeks, with me cooking, cleaning, driving her around.
I was supposed to pick her up from school at 3pm every day. Given the schedule, it would mean leaving the home around 2:30 and not getting back until 3:30-4. I’m a freelancer, so while my schedule is flexible I don’t have endless free time.
In the first week she was constantly late. Like I’d wait an hour and she wouldn’t show up until 3:45. I was furi... keep reading on reddit ➡
My step-sister (19) recently got kicked out of my parents house for a multitude of reasons. I offered to take her in until she found her own place and could support herself.
Recently, my sister has been dealing with a lot of self-image issues. She complains about her weight, constantly comparing herself to supermodels, and generally tends to have a negative view of herself.
My wife always reassures and tries to help her be comfortable in herself and her body. My wife is very gentle and kind with her words so she's always there for my sister when she starts talking about her struggles with herself. My wife is patient, always reminding her that she's good enough.
My sister than began to compare herself to my wife. My wife used to model and her body still reflects that lifestyle. It doesn't help that my wife prefers to always dress up and put way more effort when she's not going to work. At first, when this started happening, my wife tried to brush it off with a laugh an... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yes, I am definitely TA. After reading through the many, many comments and PMs I got telling me I was a horrible person, I have to admit I was feeling pretty defensive. I didn't think I was a horrible person, but everybody was telling me I was.
Then I decided to actually sit through and read every comment I got, and I slowly started to realize that I really messed up.
When I first married my wife, I was thrilled to have a step-daughter. I had always wanted a daughter and I was so excited to finally be a dad.
However, I didn't think about how she would have been feeling. Ellie has a father who she's very close with, but I never stopped to think about how she would react, all of a sudden having a step-father in her life.
I expected her to treat me like her father without realising that she already had a father, and I had done nothi... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (16m) have a twin sister (16f). We live with our dad and step mom. Our dad is an essential worker so he’s out working most days, leaving our step mom.
My sisters periods are bad. She’s on medication to help with the flow of blood but she doesn’t have any prescribed pain killers. And her cramps are bad. She can barely move and sometimes she throws up. We have some off the counter pain killers that my dad got for her, which helps her a little.
When my sister has her period and cramps, she usually doesn’t leave her room. I’m normally the only one she will let into the room since were very close, so my step mom doesn’t fully understand how bad her cramps get. But I see them first hand.
Only my dad and step mom know where her pain killers are as she’s too unorganised and would probably loose them. Every time she has a cramp, she tells me and I go ask my dad.
My dad was at work this time, so I asked my stepmom where the pills were and she started saying how my sisters such a drama q... keep reading on reddit ➡
All of this news was dropped on me in the last 3 days.
I’m assigning names to people as it’s confusing as hell. Sister is mom, mom is grandmother, etc...
Laura: my bio mom, who I grew up to know as my adoptive sister, 33F
Liz: my adoptive mom, Laura’s bio mom and my bio grandmother, 59F
Tom: Liz’s ex-husband, 60M
Jack: Tom’s son, my bio father who raped Laura, 36M
Dan: Laura’s bio brother from her dad’s side, she’s very close with him and while I never knew he was my uncle he was always very nice to me.
Before this, I thought I was just another child who was adopted right after birth with no history of note. I was told my mom was 16 when I was born and couldn’t take care of me by herself so I was adopted. It sounded normal enough, I never questioned it or wanted to know more.
On Saturday my Laura came to my room and told me to stay in the room no matter what, until she comes back. I listened, I could hear fighting between her, Liz and a guy who I later learned was Tom. The figh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m 30f, and I’ve been married to my husband (42) for a year. We’ve been together three years total. He has a daughter that just turned 16 and a son that’s 14. His son is special needs, and requires full time care. The kids live with their mother most of the time.
My dad died when I was in high school; he’d been sick a long time and he planned for the end well in advance. My sister and I had a trust set up for our inheritance. Once we were 18 we received $2500 a year. The rest was off limits until we turned 30. Dad wanted us to be responsible before we got the majority of the money, so we wouldn’t just waste it in our early 20s. The inheritance is, well, substantial. Dad was an entrepreneur with a lot of successful businesses. Not enough to live off of forever, but it’s a good safety net and an investment for the future.
I’ve had plans for the money for a while. I want to pursue a PhD, which has been a long term goal, and use the money to upgrade our home, and, my biggest goal of all... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have a 6 year old daughter from an old relationship. My daughter’s birth dad hasn’t been in the picture since before she turned one. My husband of two years has taken up the mantle of “daddy” to her and he’s absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever met, and he loves her. We’ve been talking about beginning the process for him to legally adopt her.
My pregnancy and birth was awful. I had hyperemesis gravidarum, which is basically fuck all bad morning sickness that persisted basically until right before I delivered. Even after receiving pitocin I wouldn’t dilate enough, so after laboring for hours I had an emergency c-section. While recovering from surgery and being a single mom, my daughter was also colicky and difficult to soothe.
What I’m saying is it sucked ass and I have no interest or intention of having any more children the old fashioned way. My husband knows and respects this, and he knows I want tubal ligation eventually. (He’s also mentioned maybe gettin... keep reading on reddit ➡
My dad was a member of this fraternity when he was in school, so I always planned to rush when/if I got into my university. A lot of the guys in it are very traditional (not a huge shock) compared to most people are age. Some are not but as of last year most of the leadership was.
Anyway, things were going fine. Rushed and got my bid and was feeling like it was a given at that point that I was going to be accepted until some of the brothers found out about my mom's relationship. She's been dating a really nice guy for the past few years but he's not the type of person that some people felt like she should be dating.
The brother who was put in charge of my pledge gave me a heads up about it. He said he didn't agree that it was a problem but some of the other brothers didn't feel the same way and it might be an issue. He was the one who advised me to say my mom wasn't really my mom because if we weren't related it would be less of an issue.

I married my husband 2 years ago and my relationship with my stepson (12) has never been well. We tried everything but nothing seems to work. His behavior towards me is so terrible, he shouts at me, swears me, and calls me worst “mother” ever.
His 13th birthday is tomorrow and since my daughter (7F) birthday is only 10 days apart we usually celebrate them both in the same day (they are fine with it). I asked my stepson who he has invited and that's when he facepalms (gesture) and tells me that he has already answered this question before in the worst tone ever. This is where I lost it and told him that because of his attitude I am going to cancel his birthday tomorrow. At first he didn’t believe me since it’s not the first time I intend to punish him without actually doing it in the end. But this time I was serious, and to prove it to him I called his grandparents and told them his birthday got cancelled. He started crying begging me not to cancel but I told him it’s too late.

There's been a lot of great posts revealing helpful information about how this mode works in the past few days, and the 1% cutoff continuing to rise should be plenty of evidence to show that the Dokkan Battle community is learning.

This is not the performance of a star in the playoffs. We have a chance for our first banner and you're fucking blowing it.
It just gives you the white glow.
I'm 35, and my mom who is 52 is dating a man who is is 27. This is fucking weird as hell and I really don't like this guy but whatever. He always brings up the fact that's he's my step dad and always talks about how proud of me he is and how good of a son I've become and how he's raised me so well and shit.
Like he's literally acting like my dad, which pisses me off because he is younger htan me and was barely ever in my life but more so, becuase I actually had a dad who unfortunately passed away. I told him to stop in private nad he brushed it off as nothing.
My "step dad" was at a family gathering and he was making jokes about how much of a great step son I am and how proud of me he is and I lost my shit and said "listen you worthless sack of shit, you are not my dad just because you're dating my mom, you didn't raise me and you're hte youngest person here.

A lot of you have dm’d me for an update and since things are getting better between me and my son I decided to let you know how things are going. Click here to see the original post if you haven’t already.
Since many of you have called me an asshole and after the conversation I had with my husband and his parents, I realized that I did indeed overreact and I shouldn’t have made such a harsh punishment. Some of you suggested if his attitude persists, I should find other ways to punish him like not allowing him on the laptop, let him do some housework, etc. and I will start doing these sort of punishments if needed.
Unfortunately, due to me not contacting his friends on time, his birthday party still didn’t happen on his birthday, it was postponed 2 days later, but my daughter still got to celebrate her birthday on that day. My son was obviously really upset and in th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Throwaway title sounds bad but here me out
I am a trans women that started passing recently. Anyway my step sister is mad about that because when we walk together people ask me first and before she had to introduce me and liked that power move and I could not do anything about it. Lately my step sister started telling me about how I am not a real women and I then asked what makes a real women.
She claimed that a real women is someone who experiences periods, and is cable of giving birth unless a medical problem happen. I then replied damn baby I guess I am glad I am not a real women by your standards must be really painful. My step sister cried and yelled at me and left. Her husband lately apologized for my step sisters action. Her husband is a great person. While her husband was talking to me she yelled at her husband for trying to be gay and wanted me to apologize. I refused and turned of the phone
This resonated with me deeply, especially given the current political climate of the world; the suffering of the lesser privileged due to indifference by the powerful.
We're in this together, yeah?

I was either 4 or 5 when my parents split and either 6 or 7 when my dad remarried to my step mom, she had 2 kids of her own who were 8 and 9. The way custody was set up was that I was at each house for a month at a time and I got easter and summer at my dads while christmas and every 3 day weekend was at my moms. My step sister's custody agreement was pretty similar to mine and I believe at the time it was weekdays at my dad's and weekends at my mom's plus summers for the full time at their mom's and christmas.
I know sisters are pretty cruel and such to each other but add the fact that I wasn't around them since they were young and I'm not related to them was terrible. They didn't like me and EVERYTHING was a 2v1, they had a unified front to just not like me and while I wouldn't say it was bullying, they were complete bitches to me just cause I was the "different" one. It sucked to have my parents divorced but then to be stuck in a house with 2 kids around my age who were compl... keep reading on reddit ➡
