I had a conversation with my friend earlier, and she said her SO comes before her DD so I'm curious who else thinks like this.

In a healthy relationship, this doesn't come up because neither parent expects their needs and wants to come before their children's. Children can't fend for themselves and depend on their parents so yes, they come first. However, kids also have to learn to treat others fairly and that means learning that sometimes they have to play quietly in another room because Daddy wants to watch the hockey game or Mommy wants to visit with her friends.
That's not the same as telling your 15yr old he's got to go live with grandma because step dad can't stand him anymore....
