I have had an on and off relationship with my boyfriend for 3 years and we have 2 kids. We break up then when we get back together he is really in love with me. Then a couple of months go by and i don't get the same attention. I want it to work out. His mother and I don't get along very well. We also live with her, her health is very bad and he takes care of her 24/7. I feel like i am in the way of their lives. what should i do?

There's a lot going on in your life and all of it is related. Your relationship with your boyfriend is complicated because he takes care of his mom. He is the father of your children, so a breakup and then a get-back-together cycle hurts the kids. There is love here, but it seems to come and go.

When you break up, what are you breaking up over?

Are you feeling like his mother gets more attention than you do?

How can you feel like you are in the way of their lives when you have two children with him (and they are her grandchildren) and she needs care?

Is marriage a subject of conversation here? Are you and the father of your kids committed to each other?

If you have been together just three years, then your children are very young. What do you want for them in terms of a relationship with their father and with you? Are you the primary caretaker or does your boyfriend contribute?

Do you love him?

Stay with him, he will apreciate you sticking with him through a bad patch, you are a part of his life not in the way of it.
