Hello all this is my first time ever posting or ever visiting a step parent forum. So please be nice ☺️☺️
It's hard to find information on how to deal with certain things because everyone's experiences and relationships are different. I've tried Googling but can't really find anything on my topic. My boyfriend and I were in a long distance relationship for a little over a year about 7 months ago I moved across the United States to be with him and his two children. He was married for about seven years and now divorced for about 7. Him and his ex were dating for just a very short period when she became pregnant at 20 years old. He thought marrying her would be the best thing to do , unfortunately they grew apart tried to fix it with another baby and that never works...
I believe because of the circumstances and their divorce was mostly mutual they have a great relationship most things I have found online are about bio moms bad-mouthing stepmoms or bio mom and bio dad fighting. There is none of this happening. So far she has been very cordial with me and the kids stay at my house on the weekends because I have more room and she has no issue. I sometimes pick up the kids drop them off go to their events and so on, no issue. My issue is with the way she treats my boyfriend in front of me. I feel like she is very bossy with him and sometimes talks disrespectfully. I'm not sure what to do about that. I feel like I'm the odd person out they have this relationship and have had this relationship for 13 years and I just came in the picture. I sometimes feel alone in the situation. My boyfriend is the most understanding and I have no complaints with him just wondering how to navigate this new "adventure". Please any comments are advice is welcome!
P.s. I am very grateful that everything has worked out so well I know a lot of people have it way worse.
