Any subsequent child born to the couple is a half-sibling of the respective members' prior children.
A parent's spouse of the same sex may also count as a stepparent.
A step-grandson is the grandson of someone's spouse who one is not biologically related to.
A step-granddaughter is the granddaughter of someone's spouse to whom one is not biologically related.
Alternatively, in Australia Under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) a "stepparent" in relation to a child, is interpreted as a person who is not a parent of the child; and is, or has been, married to or a de facto partner of, a parent of the child; and treats, or at any time while married to, or a de facto partner of, the parent treated, the child as a member of the family formed with the parent.
A "simple" stepfamily is one in which only one member of the couple has a prior child or children and the couple has not yet had additional children.
A stepfamily, blended family or bonus family is a family where at least one parent has children that are not genetically related to the other spouse or partner.
Either one parent may have children from a previous relationship.
Children in a stepfamily may live with one biological parent, or they may live with each biological parent for a period of time.
In addition, visitation rights mean that children in stepfamilies often have contact with both biological parents, even if they permanently live with only one.
In such cases, the parents may stop using the terms "stepparent" and "stepchild" and instead refer to the child simply as their son or daughter; depending on the child's degree of affinity for the adoptive parent and/or approval of the legal proceedings culminating in the child's adoption, the child may likewise drop the "step-" designation from his/her description of the relationship.
Even when all parties describe the relationship using the terms applied to biological and adoptive families, however, at least some of the emotional and psychological issues common to stepfamilies may persist.
A child is referred to as the stepchild, stepdaughter or stepson of their biological parent's new spouse, and that person as the stepparent, stepfather or stepmother of the child.
