Possible to live with resentment?
I've been together with my wife for about 10 years, got married about 2 years ago. 6 months after we were married, her niece (6 years old at the time) needed a place to live as my wife's mother and father were no longer able to care for her due to behavior issues.
I have told my wife and the children's aid society in the past a couple times already, that I cannot do this any longer, but my wife pushed and pushed and we kept doing it, expecting things to get better, but they haven't. (W and 7 year old niece yell and argue at eachother everyday -- 4-5 days a week I wake up in the morning to this)
Last Thursday night I broke down, didn't go home, not even sure what to do. I went back to get some clothes so and went away for a few days. She then says she is now willing to give the niece back to the children's aid society.
I haven't spoke with W since this last Thursday. It just seems that the niece has always been more important than me, and now that the niece is gone, what is left ?
Would it be too difficult to carry on our marriage, as my wife and her family would hold so much resentment towards me for not sticking it out with the niece?
