Okay, drama update.

I'm always glad that I can look Big O in the eye and tell him honestly that I did everything I could to try and make it work with his father. The Honey is taking a hard look at his behavior, and has agreed to counseling, so we'll ride this pony a little while longer. I have hope, but I want to see some follow through. If this does go south, I want to be able to look Little O in the eye, as well.
Follow through. That's what I'm looking for.

Good luck, Jen. That he's willing to work on things is a big step in the right direction. If this is what you want, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

I have been in a relationship where my husband was suspicious of EVERY male I came in contact with (including my father - how sick is THAT????), and I just couldn't take it... I had to leave. But we didn't have children, so it was a pretty clean break. I don't even know if that guy is alive any more (he was always about to die of a heart attack and I sort of hope he just got one with it already).

Thanks, Sayre.
It's going to be interesting, because he was just blown away--he actually thought that we had a damn near perfect relationship. I can see where I gave him that impression, because I just rolled over during conflict, and I DO see where that was misleading.
But if we can get to counseling, maybe I will learn to stand up for myself beter and we can figure out what makes him so angry--because his dad wasn't like this at all(even he agrees).
