This seems like an issue to be sorted out between your fiance' and his ex.  They will want to talk to and establish some conditions that they both feel comfortable with. For example, where would your step son sleep?  These are valid concerns and they need to discuss them and come to some agreement.  Maybe they can ease the overnight part with time.  A lot of smaller kids (especially if not used to spending the night outside their normal home) can be excited at first and then find it a little scary...Try not to take it personally (I know it's hard) and let them work it out.  As far as expecting her to act/feel like you and your ex arrangements in regards   to children, i would advise to let go of that expectation right away to save you some disappointment.  All moms are different and all couples arrangements are unique and make decisions we will probably never understand...Hope that helps you some!

Having a hard time with our combined family... I'm finding it difficult to establish rules, I know what i want for my two kids to do around the house, i need him & his two to get with the program as well... I've tried talking to dad but our views are slightly opposite! What shall i do?
