You have the right to......
You have the right to...love, put your heart out there, care for, entertain, be there, provide, be unselfish, teach, share your partner, & work your schedule around the step kid/kids.
Have no opinion, give no discipline, right or wrong be supportive, never bash a birth parent, love all your hate, want them around when your partner wants them around, & make sure you focus on all of their needs.
When you marry a man that is a father or a woman that is a mother, them are your rights!
God bless ALL step parents & hope your partner is worth it
