Blended Life

 Question from a listener: “The #ex wants to meet me and I don’t think it’s necessary. My boyfriend thinks it will get her off his back since her reasoning is “she wants to know who her child is spending so much time with”, but I think we all know why she wants to meet me, to size me up. What are your thoughts? Should we meet?” Question from a listener: “I am wondering if you can share some more insight on the #insecurities between your spouse and their ex. My spouse feels that it is important for everyone to open, and get along. I feel that all of it is lacking boundaries and lacks respecting our relationship and just makes me feel insecure. This is one of our biggest obstacles. We can't agree on things and he thinks I'm being very stern and unnecessary and I think that he needs to put boundaries in place, because the line of old relationship and new relationship is kind of blurry. What are your thoughts?” Question: How to handle when your step child is jealous of you and your #relationship with their parent. What can you do to help them through and support your spouse in the process? Question: “My boyfriend’s daughter is coming over this weekend to stay the night for one night and I fear that he will just allow her to come sleep in our bedroom again (against my permission and will) and I refuse to allow this to continue any longer. How would you handle this? How do I bring it up to him before she comes over? It obviously needs to be discussed and handled before then.”

Our Purpose: Why is talking about blended families and life in general important? Because we believe that we can do better than what statistics say about second marriages lasting, about blending families making it, that’s why! A 70% divorce rate statistic for remarriages with children is simply unacceptable! Spreading life lessons, passing along wisdom gained from experience and bringing to light what is often happily left in the dark to hide, is how we all can learn to be better, to do better the second time around (in a #blendedfamily many lives depend on it). Together we can avoid costly mistakes that will end in the demise of our precious families.   -Blended Life
