Yes there might be a "passive" hope that change will in fact occur. I still think you need to tell them how you are feeling. Bottling stuff up is a recipe for disaster my friend. The longer you put it off, the more little things will be added and surpressed as well in my opinion. You are in this for the long haul it seems..the long haul requires a lot of work. I mean a lot. I spent a good six months of intense work to start truly seeing the possibilities. Six months of very open communication and a fair share of confrontation. Redpepper would agree. This isn't easy when you are trying to build a sustainable family type situation. I think it's best that you all become very aware that this is going to push each of you and the sooner you deal with issues the better things will become.
You don't need to do all the work. There are three of you involved right now so start sharing the burden and supporting each other
Peace and Love
