I'm a father whose dating a women who has 2 teenage boys whom are very disrespecrful towards my fiancé. She states that it's just been the 3 of then for the longest time but respect is something that children show because it's taught at a very age. I feel that she is hindering them and at this point I'm at my boiling point and I don't want be bothered with them.....

What should I do?

You could decide to end the relationship. It's very unlikely that you'll be able to help the situation if none of them want change. If you can't tolerate the status quo you should seriously consider moving on. Not in a "your kids wrecked our relationship" kind of way, just in a "I can't deal with this, I'm not what your family needs" sort of way.

You could stay in the relationship, but you should do so with the expectation that you're going to need to suck up the situation with her kids.

You could slow down the relationship for now, and have limited contact with her kids... with the expectation that they are teenagers and will be adults and on their own eventually.
