Missi, from Texas

I am having some major resentment issues that I need to learn how
to overcome before it ruins my marriage. My husband's ex works full time,
receives our child support (which he has always paid on time), not to mention
she has an ongoing affair with a married man 30 years older than her who
gives her money, pays her bills and buys the kids whatever they want. She is
a very materialistic person who continues to teach the kids
love = material things. My problem is that because we have my 3 stepchildren
that we raise part time at our home, plus pay child support and all of our
normal bills as well, we also have a 3 year old of our own to support. At
times I feel like he has to do without for lack of finances and I feel so
much resentment towards my Stepkids' Mother that its affecting me in many
ways. Can anyone help me learn how to deal with this? Am I wrong for feeling
this way?
