My stepson

This is my 2nd marriage. I have a 22yo and an 18 yo from my first marriage. I've being single for 17 years and raised my kids, put them through school, and did it all by myself. I married the 2nd time and we have being together for 2 years . He has a son who is 13 but he acts like a 21 year old. My step son will always intrude in my conversation with my husband or any of my husband extended family. I'm forever telling my 13 yo step son, in a nice way not to stick his nose in my business he will constantly give his opinion about everything. He will always always have something to say. I always feel his undermining me. I know my husband compensates quite a bit. We have him every weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday. My husband takes him to soccer 3 times a week as well. Without sounding like a jealous step mum. I work full time, cook, wash clean after everyone. I also do the lawn and other chores as my husband is always out with his son. Occasional my own children help but I'm at my wits end and feel my anxiety has gone sky high. I've asked my husband to separate. I just can't do it anymore.
