I was raised in a blended family like this.

My suggestion is this:

1. Your step daughters probably have some emotional issues due to the divorce and their mother's choices. These probably exhibit in their behaviors. They more than likely need therapy.

2. You and your husband need to agree on a common parenting method and he has to enforce that you are "in locus parents" and not them.

3. As a couple, you need to clearly establish boundaries and consequences for the daughters behaviors.....and enforce them.

4. You obviously were aware he had children and chose to marry him. Do not try and force him to choose between you and them, that is patently unfair, and leads to no one winning.
