I have been a member of DS for a while, but never in this community. I have a situation that I could use some help with. I do not know where to draw the line with my ex- step children. I will not go into the whole affair, but my wife and I are divorcing. The primary reason is that her daughter (17 years old) and I could not any peace. 6 months ago, I bought a new house, and moved into town. My wife has kept the farm, and the divorce is in process. The problem that I am unclear about, is that my step daughter has started coming over here 1-3 times per week. She eats and sleeps here, and brings her laundry. She usually has another friend with her. I feel like I want to support her in any way that I can, but another part of me feels used, because her criticism of me is one of the biggest things that drove a wedge between my wife and myself. I feel like she is just here because it is handy for her. Ant thoughts about where to draw the line? CIAO- RC
