Can step-siblings be Mahrams

Q: I am a divorced mother with two sons aged 17 and 12 and a daughter aged 14. I have received a proposal from someone who is also divorced with two daughters aged 13 and 8. If we marry, do my sons become 'mahrams' to these girls by virtue of our marriage ?

A: Should you marry the said person, your sons will not become 'mahrams' to his daughters. The Islamic laws of segregation shall apply between them.

And Allah Knows Best
