Hi, I hope I'm in the right group. I don't technically have step children and I am plenty leary of these!
My step children to be ( if I decide to move forward with their Dad) are ages 27 ( single girl) and 30 (married man) are trying to dictate to their Dad that he not include me in family activities. My BF has a large and close family, lots of sisters, nieces, nephews who all live in the same town. All have been welcoming to me except for one of his sisters and his father. Actually, the married son is the mouthpiece on the subject . It is causing my BF much pain as he tries to deal with what I see as blackmail. It hurts my feeling greatly also.
