There is often a tendency with step-households to try to equalize rules completely between the two families. This can often be impossible - the parents are very different individuals, and even the same rules can be interpreted very differently.
Children are very adaptable and have already learned that different rules exist for school, for home, for visiting, etc. As long as each family is consistant with its rules, and understands the rules of the other family, there is no need to make each and every rule match exactly in both places.
