Where do i start? :(

ok...

before i type a HUGE post (out of the gate), let me start be simply stating that i have found myself in the MOST complicated situation in my life...

Long story short, i have "taken" my 14 year old nephew (wife's side of the family) under my wing because, well, he needed a male role model in his life -- dad is out of the picture (mostly), mom's BF is, well, he is NOT very interested in being a "step dad" and, well, this boy needs someone to help guide him towards adulthood (he has has a few "speed bumps" recently that clearly show he needs a +male in his life!)

anyway, the issue?

well, my wife has been "at odds" with this boys mom for ~3-4 years....

YUP!

i have found myself in between waring sisters! (though really, my wife at her sister)...

:(

i can/will give GREATER detail (if it will help) next time, but well, i pretty much feel as though i have a step son now...
(and my wife hates his mom!)

and i need advice as to how to best "integrate" him into my life (while still being true to my traditional family duties/responsibilities)...
