Answer:

Bismillah

When a man and woman come into physical contact (amongst other actions) which is combined with lust from either side the ruling of al-Hurmat al-Musaharahwill take effect.

This means that the mother (and lineage going above) of that woman and her daughter/s (and lineage going down) will become eternally haram for that man and marriage between them will be impermissible.

Likewise the father (and lineage going above) of that man and his son/s (and lineage going down) will become eternally haram for that woman and marriage between them will be impermissible.As a result any existing relation between the above will also be terminated.[1]

In regards to your question as the kissing and touching was combined with lust and desire the ruling of al-Hurmat al-Musaharah has taken effect and the marriage between your mother and step father has therefore been terminated.To avoid them living in sin they should be informed about this.

For a detailed explanation of the rules of al-Hurmat al-Musaharah please refer to the link below:
