Can a step father or step mother be able to love their step children like they love their own children?

Hi there. Yes I believe you can love a child from a previous relationship, But I think you would have more of a chance if the child was young and not gone past teenage years, I think that would be difficult for both teenager and step parent... But its not impossible thats for sure...

Yeah its possible that they love and treat their step children like they would have done with their own blood. But in many cases they pretend to love and care for the child in front of the society and behind the curtail a different scenario is being played. Some are victims of incest,rape and other atrocities but not all people are alike in this world so we cant just generalise thing and say that if someone marries again his children will be troubled by the step one.

Mu husband has 3 children whom I love as if they were my own and I treat them as if they were mine. I also have 2 children whom my husband loves and treats as his.also I have 3 grandchildren who he has taken into his life and loves just as if they were his also.

Yes I think so but it depends on the person. Some people just don't have a lot of love in their hearts and are mean. There are many people who are full of love and can love children that aren't theirs by blood as their own.

Yes very much so. I have 3 step children and love all 3 of them very much. I see the oldest 2 the most my step son Danny comes over a lot. And my 14 year old step daughter comes over more often now. And I also have a step daughter Rosie who I have not seen for awhile but I love her just the same. I love all of my kids the same as I love them.
