Do I have to pay the bills for my wifes children? Posted on April 12, 2011

I live with a woman who has 2 children (ages 16 and 20) who has joint custody with her -ex, but the kids don't get along with their step-mother, so they live with us about 90-95% of the time. I have been payin 1/2 (one-half) of the 'house bills' since Feb 2007 (when we built our house), but feel that I should have only been (and should only continue to pay) 1/4 (one-fourth) of the 'bills' i.e. mortgage, utilities, food, taxes, insurance, etc., because these kids are not mine, do not treat me well, etc. What is the legal view of this situation??
