I think it really depends on the situation. I know some people who are closer to their step-parents than their biological parents and love them to death and I also know of many awful situations. Its tricky. One of my friends met a woman with two children, they dated for years and got engaged. Right before the wedding she cheated on him and then ended it. She forbid him from seeing the children again. He loves them like they are his own children but has no legal rights and can’t see them.
