Stepmom vs. Stepdad

Just a question to throw out there since I’m wide awake in the middle of the night…

Do any of you feel that there is a double standard with stepdads vs. stepmoms?

On TV shows, radio and even reading articles it always seems that the men that “step up and step in” to raise another mans child/ren are the most amazing people on earth yet the stepmoms still seem to get the short end of the stick and dealing with a whole lotta hell.

I’m not personally saying that they have it easy, but just noticed that there definitely seems to be a divide and I wondered why? Is it as bio-dads really don’t have as many issues as bio-moms do with regard to someone else helping to raise their children? Do they simply move on quicker and not hold as much bitterness?

Any opinions on this would be interesting to hear. TIA!
