What do you mean? We've made our blended family work with many ups and downs over the years. If I had to go back and do it again, chances are I'd think twice, but in general I think people should have whatever family they choose.
Not sure what you mean when you say blended because there's a couple ways to think of that but my husband and I became a blended family. We each had a son when we met and then after we married we had 2 more. Its really hard in our case. If I could go back and do it again and be able to keep the two we made..... I never would of done it. I love my step son with all my heart and I have been raising him full time since he was two (now 8) but sometimes the heart ache and chaos is just too much for me. Maybe if my husband were more honest and supportive instead of being the way he is it would be easier.
It's hard sometimes. I mean you don't sit around as a little girl and dream of a blended family like you do your own family. There is never a white picket fence where a biological mom comes and picks up her kid! But, before you even start a relationship with someone you know what comes with them. If you feel comfortable sharing, what's your situation?
Ah the blended family, my dh & I each brought child(ren) into our relationship then have 1 together. We are new at it (3 yrs in Aug) still & have a bunch of other crap going on. I agree with the other ladies that if I had to do it again I may think twice. I think it would be easier if I joined SS's life when he was younger (he was 2 months shy of 10). Is there a group on here for blended families? I def could use that support.
