Hi @Dazza thank you for sharing with us today.
I'm sorry to hear that you have been having trouble with your wife's kids, to the point that it has started causing arguments between the two of you. I can only imagine how hard and overwhelming things must feel right now, especially hearing that you now feel like a stranger in your own home. I am just wondering if you have had a chance to sit down and have a conversation with your wife about how this makes you feel? You also mentioned that you had both talked about some house rules, did she ever talk to you about why she didn't agree with them? Is there a possibility at all of adjusting these rules to suit everyone?
If you are up for a bit of reading, the Raising Childrens Network has some really helpful articles that may be useful in such a situation. Parentline might also be a great resource worth looking into for some additional support. I am also wondering how you look after yourself when things get hard?
We are all here for you.

I'm sorry to hear that you've been finding it so hard to talk to your wife about this @Dazza I can only imagine how hurtful and even heartbreaking that would be for you. I am wondering if something like Family counselling might be helpful in this situation. Do you feel like this is something that you and your wife may consider? I can hear just how hard things are right now and know how awful it can be to manage on your own. It might also be worth reaching out to somewhere like the Family relationship advice line, for some extra support.
We appreciate you keeping us updated and want to remind you that you're not alone in this.
