Question

My Fiance has no self esteem because of his family...?

I'm engaged to a great guy.

He's super nice, and he treats me well...

but he has absolutely NO self esteem.

I don't mean to sound mean, but it gets annoying sometimes...

He has a twin brother, that his family favors.

They always gave him whatever he wanted when he was little, and didn't treat him and my finance as equals at all.

My fiance lets his family walk all over him, and they act like he's their slave. They're always asking him to practically bend over backwards to meet their every whim, and it drives me crazy. I hate them, they always ask him to take them here and take them there, just so they don't have to drive themselves...

And because my Fiance works 6 days a week, I'm ALWAYS the one who has to do it!

I'm tired of it! But he can't say no to them! He's always like "well they're my family" etc. etc.

I understand they're his family, but there comes a point where you have to be like, okay, thats enough...

I attend college, and so I don't have a lot of extra time on my hands, where I can just run around and be a taxi service for them... And then he doesn't get why I get mad when they ask us to do all this crap! And it drives me nuts!

My Fiance and I never argue, ever. The only time we ever have disagreements, it's always about his parents / family.... and I'm tired of it...

does anyone know what I can do?

Please help...

I wish I had a better answer but don't try to sway him one way or the other. I know for a fact you can talk til you're blue in the face, if he doesn't see it, you'll be fighting without a cause. Choose your battles wisely & true love will prevail. He will eventually see. Play your part and be a loving aware spouse.
