Believe it or not your step son is a Marine now and sounds like he is going to the school of hard knocks. If he is any kind of Marine he will survive and become a contributing citizen to the community. He no longer needs help from his step mom.

Okay, I will eat my humble pie now. It does not taste good, but I need it.
In reply to some of you that have responded to my last post, you must have not been following the previous posts or you would have realized a few things here: 1. Outside of being a Marine, my stepson is extremely immature for several reasons that are not his fault. 2. Bride was only his second girlfriend. He proposed to her after knowing her for 2 months. She was not even 19 years old at the time and less than a year out of high school. They barely knew each other; she is a spoiled 'daddy's girl' and her mother couldn't get her out of the house and on someone else's expense account fast enough. They were married within 6 months of the proposal but her mother encouraged my stepson to move in with them and sleep with bride 5 months before the wedding. He was not raised this way and I cannot fathom how any mother who truly cared about her daughter would do this. The wedding itself was put together in haste and was a fiasco.
In a nutshell, my stepson was too immature and inexperienced to have any clue about what he was getting himself into, and his bride is also very immature and seems to be 'playing house'. They have incurred a boatload of debt (besides the house) and are rapidly getting in over their heads. They don't seem to know when to stop, and he hasn't had his first deployment yet. I can see nothing good coming out of any of this.
I love my stepson and have not uttered one word to him or bride regarding my feelings about the situation. I am friendly toward her when they are around as I don't wish to risk alienating my stepson. I think he is in for some very difficult and heartbreaking lessons that will ultimately make him stronger and smarter, but I hate to see him go through the necessary pain.
I suppose I have gone too far in expressing my abhorrence of the situation. I will go away now.

Were you going to eat your humble pie before or after you nitpicked your stepson's life again? I don't suspect that anyone here is telling you to go away, but I can't fathom how this is productive or does anything to help any of his situations.
Besides, there's an old saying that holds true in this situation. "Sh!t stinks, but it makes things grow." I can assure you that nothing you've expressed about your stepson is any worse than many of the mistakes I made at his age, but I made them nonetheless and am still standing today.

And I hope he is still standing as well.
I guess these are lessons that he will need to learn on his own. I wish he had made better choices (excluding becoming a Marine, of course--that was one of the smartest things he's ever done so far) but making bad decisions and then dealing with the consequences is part of growing up. I have done some truly regrettable things in my life as well but learned something each time.
So far, other than boot camp, he does not appear to have been truly challenged outside of his comfort zone. I know that's coming (deployment), and I have a feeling that this is when his domestic situation will start to come apart at the seams. I just hope it doesn't interfere with the true task at hand of being a Marine.
