I coached baseball and basketball and could always tell which child didn't have a decent father around. Its sad to see boys go without proper leadership because they need it so badly. However, as a step dad you can only do so much without running the risk of alienating the child and your wife. You have to make the child come to you and it may take years.
You married a single mother from a different culture. These are two huge challenges for any marriage in my opinion. Honestly, I could never endure such treatment from a family and would make a stand regardless of the consequences. You need to set some bondaries real quick and man up or get used to being a doormat. Are you really going to live your life according to the third world Aunt?
