miserable in michigan

Hi Everyone,
I'm new to these boards so please bear with me. I have been with my husband for a total of 12 years, lived with for 7, married 5.I have an 18 year old daughter who lives with us, and he has a 14 year old son who dosent live with us. My husband has raised my daughter since the age of 6 ,,, and still does not treat her as if he has any love for her as a daughter. Through the years, it seems as though he has only " tolerated " her most of the time, mixed occasionally with caring. Over the years I have seen alot of comparing of our children, favoritism and outright resentment towards my daughter.
I am sooooooooooo tired of the way he nitpicks at everything she does, or dosent do. He seems to find fault with everything, and actually looks for things wrong to complain about.At the moment, she is 6 months pregnant, and he STILL seems to have no compassion for her. We had a huge fight last night about his attitude towards her and he ended up leaving for the night.
I am not saying my child is perfect, but she is a pretty good kid although pretty snotty alot., but she IS my daughter, and I love her very much, and feel she deserves to have a father figure that cares about her.
Please help !!!!!! I am at the end of rope.

sounds familiar

My husband of 3 years does the same to my 16 yo son.

I am sooooooooooo tired of the way he nitpicks at everything she does, or dosent do. He seems to find fault with everything, and actually looks for things wrong to complain about.

My DH does this ALL the time -also calls him bad names says hes a "F--- up". My kid is not all that bad. Yes, he gets snotty at times, and argues a bit, but he is 16. Hes never had a dad in his life, to show him how to fix a car etc...

His 13 yo son lives with us. And I see favortism all the time. DH treats my son with no respect, so my son treats himw/n respect either. Its caused alot of fights around here. I tend to treat his son badly because of the way mine is treated, which bothers me.
I am losing mylove for my husband because of the way he treats my son. My son is trying to find another place to stay back home, and it crushes meand breaks my heart. Sometimes I wish Id never married this man.
