remarriage and a jealous stepdaughter

I am a 40 year old mom of three...ages 16, 20 and 21. I am getting remarried this week to a wonderful man, my kids are happy for us, the only problem I am having at the moment is with his daughter, who is 31, married and has a child of her own. She told her Aunt that I am driving a wedge between her and her father, I have done nothing of the sort. He spends every thursday-saturday with her and his parents while I work. What do I do about this? I feel she is being a child and not an adult. He and I are happy and I think that is driving her crazy, she doesn't work or do anything....HELP!!!

She probably just needs time to adjust. It is hard feeling like you are losing your dad. My dad married my step mom when I was 2 and I still feel sometimes like she is driving a wedge. My dad and I actually just had this discussion. She draggs him to do everything with her boys and one of their horrid wives and I do not get to see him much although they see the kids pretty much weekly. I had to tell him that doing for me is not doing things with me. I do feel like sometimes my step mom makes it more about her kids and the wife than me and I do get upset.
