Stepfamily Day

Permanently or bad, it can be suggested that the standard radial household is coming to be an extinction. Stepfamily Day recognizes that stand-in and step-families are entitled to acknowledgment for the treatment and assistance they offer, which oftentimes step-parents, step-siblings and step-relatives are equally adored and close as biological loved ones.

stepfamilies and weddings?

I'm sure this is painful for you. This is one of those times when you have to swallow hard and do what makes things easiest for the bride. She'll love you forever if you tell her 1) that you love her and want to be there and 2) that you'll do whatever will make her wedding day the best for her.

when do you come to terms that won’t blend as a stepfamily?

when do you come to terms that won't blend as a stepfamily?

Every time I see a question like this, I feel comfort in the fact that I am not alone. I want to apologize in advance for my lengthie response to your question.

You don't give up and call it quits, sweetie! You just don't. My husband and I each have children from previous relationships and although we are very much in love and very happy together our children (his children mostly) have been a point of tension in our relationship. There are days that I still wonder if we will ever find that comfortable "family" feeling that we're "supposed" to have. Why in the world isn't it perfect when we are so much in love and so happy with each other? I guess what has been a major struggle is trying to get past the "yours" and "mine" aspect in regard to the children. It's hard because we weren't around to raise each others children from day one and we're trying to form bonds with kids that don't always make us feel welcome. There is guilt associated with the divorce on my husband's end and a constant need to compensate for the fact that their mother is a piece work and is basically useless. My children's father isn't much better, so he and I are constantly in a position where we have to make up for what the other parent lacks. It isn't fair, and it sometimes brings resentment, but the key is realizing that since we love our husbands, we need to love all the things about them----even those children that could care less if we dropped out of the picture tomorrow. You need to get on the same page....there can be no seperate rules for the kids of the house---there can be no favoring your own child over your spouses child. It's very difficult, but you must get on the same page and work as a team and partnership. The kids also need it to be made clear to them that they need to respect you both even if they don't always agree and even if they don't like you. Out of love for your husband, you need to respect his child and be the adult and get past your feelings of resentment. The two of you share a child together and you're in sync there, so you need to be that way with each other's children. There need to be no boundaries of yours and needs to be "ours" even though you are not the natural parents of each others children. I know this is has taken us the better part of five years and there are still days when I wonder if it will ever be right. Blending a family takes time....A LOT of time. Accept the fact that it may never feel perfect, but also accept the fact that you've got to get past whatever resentment you feel for the ex and his child and let the love you have for your husband be your motivation in all your interactions with his child. That's what I have been doing, and it is still a challenge, but at least I can go to sleep at night knowing that I am doing my part. Good luck to you. I hope that this helps you. You're definitely not alone!
