What inherent starting problems do stepfamilies face?

The Starting Point

Stepfamilies do not begin like traditional marriages do - in order to have a stepfamily, children were already born to another "couple". This means that a stepfamily tends to have built-in feelings of jealousy and loss that do not exist in the traditional first-time-for-each marriage. Realize that these feelings exist, and that they are normal, and work to accept and move past these feelings.
