Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: She Doesn't Want To Be An Evil Step Mother



Dear Mike & Liza,
I mar­ried my hus­band just before Christ­mas. I’m 43, he is 46 and and his youngest daugh­ter is 15. She and I have a ter­rific rela­tion­ship. She calls me Kathy, we talk like girl­friends, I know she trusts me and she knows I love her. We agreed that she has two par­ents who love her and are here to “raise her” and I am going to be like a close friend, or a cool Aunt. I am not her Mother and I’m not try­ing to be. My hus­band seems to think that I should be try­ing to con­vert to “Step-Mother Sta­tus” and I just don’t think that’s going to work for us. His daugh­ter and I are per­fectly happy with our rela­tion­ship just the way it is.
I don’t want to turn into the Evil Step Mon­ster. What should we do?
Kathy, Ammon
