Why do step parents get all the b*s of the old relationship screw ups between the parents?

I go through it daily and was just thinking to myself how it feels hopeless often , he is 18 now and I have done more than my fair share of trying over and over to get nowhere.It makes me understand how hard it is on the kid I guess,and just why divorce rates are so high.It is the lack of motivation on the parents that impacts the child and in return you get a close minded , untrusting person who is bitter at the end of the day.Just venting I guess.

  • us step moms will always get the shit end of the stick and all the blam even when we have nothing to do with anything. and most times all we can do is sit there and suck it up. we can give them the world ( kids ) and bio mom can give them string and its better...we can always cook a great meal ( husbands ) and yet the x made it just a lil bit better...sorry u deal with bulls*** know your NEVER alone. vent away mama...

  • I am having a dumb moment, I don't think I understand the question. Are you asking why the step parents have to deal with all the shit from a divorce?
