I Am A Step Mom No Matter What People Say!

I am 26 years old and I have been with my boyfriend for three years. I love him but after two failed marriages he doesn't take love to easily. I dont blame him at all. He has two kids. His son is graduating high school this year and I am so very proud! His daughter is a pre teen and she is just a little firecracker. She is sassy and very smart. I am very much in love with this family. My boyfriend is 15 years older than me and because he has two failed marriages he does not want to get remarried and because his kids and almost grown he does not want more kids. I feel i am starting to become ok with that. I LOVE these kids as if they were my own. If only their mother wasnt a control freak who thinks she can control me and my boyfriend. We took the kids out to the lake one day and when we got home we were very tired so my boyfriend and I layed down for a nap. The ex has her daughter text her constantly while she is at our house. She called me up complaining saying it is wrong for us to be in our room alone together when her kids are there. Our bedrom door was wide open and we were NOT doing anything. I feel the kids are old enough to take care of themselves for a half an hour. They are 18 and 13. Am i right or wrong?

They are old enough. The BM needs to get off her high horse.
