Good afternoon. I have an interesting question I would like to know what the origin of the word "step" is? After my mom dies.My dad remarry a couple of years later. Some huge Italian woman.Who is supposed to be my step mom. she was ugly,mean,never smile.Her family was the same way. Not sure how my father got mix into this.Of course I was a young pup. What is the origin of the word step is.Like step mom,step sister,etc Where did this come from.Why is it a step mom or sisters. Just curious.My step sister yes like the witched one in Cinderella the whole family was nuts.I am so glad got away from them. For some reason I do not like the idea of step mom or dad or sisters. My question for the day. photo online

@amadeo So in my mind if your Mom passed, then she was still your Mom, the other would have been your Dad's second wife, but I wouldn't think that she'd really have a legal relationship with you without adoption papers. I know that is the way that it is up here now, I have a friend who went thru this. Without adoption it is considered to be a blended family by today's standards.

When my ex remarried he pretty much picked a woman like you describe...mean and she never treated my children very well. She put ugly into the ugly stepmother category and although she wasn't really all that ugly in her face her ugliness came from within.
