Don't know how to be a step-mom

I think my jealousy of my step-daughter is just about to end my marraige...and I don't want it to. I learned from her mother that she does not like my 2 boys and that she probably wishes it were just her and her dad. I don't want her to feel like that and have no idea where to start to try to fix this problem. Husband is lacking in the emotional department when it comes to me so when I try to talk to him about anything pertaining to her he gets defensive. I have recently decided that my actions around here are probably immature...but just trying to make her happy. Like sending my boys away while I am at work and when I get home I avoid the hubby and her so she can have what she wants. My intentions were good...but just wrong I guess.....Any advice?! Please help!

You need to inform her that were family even if some may not say so and Im thinking you are losing time with the boys since you do that stuff for your step daughter you need to paitently talk to her why her mother doesnt want the boys around and ask her what is it about the boys you like and dont like and tell her that her mother telling her bad things is wrong. just spend more time with her and the boys.
