I am a new stepmom of a 16 1/2 year old girl. She does not want anything to do with me at all because she doesn't want a "new family", which I understand and figure we can hopefully work through over time. Her parents have been divorced about 12 years so it has been a while and she's used to the divorce, just not me. But she has a very weird request of my new husband (her dad). I can understand she wants time alone with him like they used to do - go for starbucks, dinner, lunch, things like that. But she is not asking for that. She keeps asking him to take her to the drive-in alone. She doesn't want to do the things they used to do - just go to the drive-in after dark alone together. It is making my husband uneasy as it is me. It just seems a little weird. Does anyone have any thoughts or insight?
