My boyfriend (m37) and I (f36) have been together about 3 years. The dog he bought his kids is aggressive to everyone.

It's the kind of thing where they don't like being told what to do. No matter who they're hearing it from. What is his relationship like with his family, especially his mother? Sometimes it's just as simple as that....they want to act like children and don't want to be told what to do, ever. At some point you made him feel like you enabled him and he could get away with this, no fault of your own at all, but this was what they perceived. I know this is not easy to confront but I think in my heart of hearts he is aware of what he's doing and he's taking advantage of you and your kindness. I just don't want to see you in my shoes in 20 years still trying to figure this out BUT you are stuck with him and kids ❤️.
