My boyfriend has two kids by his ex-wife, pre-teens, which are boys. He spends as much time with them as possible, so it is good to know he is a good dad. However, the problem is he takes them on trips, to nice restaurants, and other nice places but all we do is stay at home and I cook all the time. He should be moving in soon with me but is it right for me to feel jealous of his boys? Jealous of Children, Alabama
Dear Jealous of Children:
No you are not wrong to feel jealous of his boys especially when he is not treating you like a man should treat a woman. Remember “Men Are From Mars and Women From Venus, so when it comes to courtship, some men are totally lost in that department. This could also be a reason why he and his wife split.
His bond with his boys is forever and it is probably easier for him to bond with them than you, so that will never change. However, what needs to change is your relationship to him.
Have a talk with him and let him know that you feel he neglects you in the romance department. Tell him if he moves in what is expected of the relationship. Relationships just doesn’t consist of staying at home all the time, so make sure he understands how you feel. Or you need to rethink your relationship with him.
