Step-Parents

So..these past couple of days I have learned from CM that step-parents are DA DEBIL.

Or are they?

I have learned that divorced moms and dads should never date or remarry because it will traumatize the kids.

I have learned that Step-moms will always hate the existing children and will seek to remove them asap so she can stake her territory and live her own fairytale.

I have learned that divorced moms/dads who remarry lose all backbone and let their inferior childless interloper call all the shots.

I have learned that unless stepmom/dad put the stepkid ABOVE everyone else including spouse/their biokids/themselves, they are just nasty whores who should have not dated or married someone with kids.

I have finally learned that step-parents are obviously witches and warlocks who cast love spells to force divorced moms and dads to marry their evil asses. it's the only explanation because step-parents are unloveable and pathetic man/woman-stealing losers who want to make life hell for Snow White...I mean..the biokids.


Well...my family full of step-parents and bioparents and happy kids says that all of the above statements are full of ninnymugginned crap. My DH who happens to be stepdad (actually DAD because thats what OUR daughters call him. They call him DAD because he's a DAD not just a sperm donor) would also like to point out that he's glad I didn't become a celibate weirdo after my divorce from my first husband. .

I'm glad your husband likes the weirdo you are, it's nice to know there is someone out there for you.

Nobody should believe half the crap that is posted on some of the more popular groups on CM. There are a lot of bitter women out there.

but than again, there are a lot of women that will actual expect a man to just forget about their kids with another woman. Do what is best for your family.

I am a product of a broken family and love my dad (step) very much. I am also a step-parent and so is my husband, we don't have nearly the drama some of these women cause here. My kids also have a step-mother and frankly, I'd rather deal with her than my ex-husband.

Ohh...I get it. I point out all the absurdities hurled at and about step-parents every day on this site so that means I am on drugs.

I would say sorry that I, obviously, touched a nerve...but I'm not. I am SOBERLY not sorry.

:D

My stepmother, who married my father long after I moved out of the house, has been an awesome grandmother to my son.  Not so my biomom.  My SM is a much nicer person than my mother.  I wish I could have gone through some of my childhood with SM as my mother instead of my actual mother; I would not have needed to do as much psychological repair in my early adult years.  

There are terrible stepmoms and stepdads out there, of course.

I don't know personally.  However, My husbands  step dad was more of a dad than his real dad.

That's how my dad is. He raised me. I never really knew my BD. I get real annoyed when people refer to him as my stepdad. They do it for no reason other than the point out lack of shared dna.

My ex-MIL still calls him my stepfather. Blood is more important to her than love.

 My hubby called him dad too.  His brother who is his half brother if you say half he snaps at you.
