There is no question here-- but getting married would be VERY good idea if you want to show this home is stable. (Get a prenup!)

we do walk a straight line and under no circumstance do we speak negative of our step sons mom. Nor do we discourage his relationship with her. The accusations Im not worried about because they are false, interview any of our children an they will see this. My problem lies in WHAT STEPS DO WE TAKE NOW THAT WE FOUND OUT MY STEP SON HAS BEEN MOLESTING MY AUGHTER? His mother will try everything to make this my daughters fault. or ours. Im a stay at home mom, Im an over the top mom, I stay up with them go everywhere with them Its once I fall asleep that he has been playing the torture game with her, its a game where he writes the words front an back on a paper and she picks which she wants and they look at each other, IM FREAKING OUT , THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR TWO YEARS!!!!!!!!!!111 AND I JUST FOUND OUT. !! WHAT DO WE DO FOR BOTH
