Quoting Bertieb:

It will be different for everyone. Depends on the ages you come together, involvement of birth mom and your relationship with all of them.  MY skids are teens and above and the last one leaves for college in the fall. We have a good relationship I think.,  I'm dad's wife and a friendly ear, like an aunt.

 Don't be surprised if that grows as they get older. I'm very close to my mom and my stepmom would never take her place, but my stepmother is very special to me. She married my dad when I was 13. It took me a year or so to adjust but she is a great friend and a parental figure to me too. She's also a fantastic grandmother to my kids as well. Lucky for me my biological parents and stepparents are all able to be mature and put what is best for me and the grandkids first and there is no jealousy or competition between them.
