Dating married guy
For example, when at home everyone gets along and does activities together, but in public the child may ignore the step parent and keep a distance.
It's very short and I dare say shallow in it's points.
Think about it: Those same kids are going to grow up and want to be #1 with their new love interest.
Imagine if they get married and have children and either spouse is # 2, 3, or worse? Keep the nucleus of the family between the parents and the children learn what a health relationship is....balanced with respect and love for the children at all times.
All it takes is for one of them to be a bad influence and you have trouble. I'm 31, and i'm dating a woman who just turned 39 and has 2 kids (4 and 6).
Throw in child support problems, possible jealousy issues with any of them, and any of the children have psych issues from the divorce itself and it's a big nut to crack. I've never been great around kids, they annoy me a lot, though i always thought i wanted kids, it's not my time.
