well.. your situation is a toughy. Sorry you are going through this right now. I understand how annoying a family can be when it comes to your kids. My husbands grandma has made me feel the same way about my daugthers. i've never said anything because I didn't want to hurt her feelings, but I could have exploded at her and made things worse, although this is bad, she ended up getting the shingles and I kept my kids away from her for that month and after that I had my kids on a different routine that they didn't need her like they did before. So although it's bad for her, i'm thankful for her shingles. Back to you though. It sucks that this is happening after so many years, but you can only fight for your family for so long. It starts to get old and overwhelming on you when you are doing the fighting alone. As soon as you feel that your husband has given up, there might not be any hope. If you feel that he is trying, take advantage and make things better. but honestly, just because of the years invested and your son, don't make your lfie miserable. Your son sees life through you, so you should make it a happy one with or without daddy.
I've only been married for six years with my husband, we have three kids and we do enough argueing to make me want to face plant him on the concrete outside, but there is still some fight in the both of us. Not much though. : / you know when it's over and you know when it's worth trying.. Good luck to your family and best wishes!
