  • Wedding: June 2012

This is what I fear. I will be married in June and my FH has 6 and 7 year old boys. They will live with us full-time, but I know they have no loyalty to me. I fear they will grow up and resent me or only want to be with their mom. She has not done much to earn their love or respect… and I will be footing the bill financially and emotionally to raise these beautiful kids

Anyways, I think the most important that I have learned (from my FH that was previously a stepdad) is that the parenting from the two parents in the home do NOT conflict. Your husband needs to back you up and vice versa. It doesn’t sound like this happened in your case and now you are seeing the backlash. Be sure to get that together for the 13 year old so that it doesn’t happen again.
