Food for thought

I watched an interesting YouTube video that basically stated that blended families should not exist thus stepparents should not exist.
If a couple couldn't manage to stay married and got divorced, then they are supposed to remain single and raise their kids instead of adding a new partner to the mix. The only time remarriage would be okay is if a spouse passed away, but divorce should never have been an option and without it there would never be the constant chaos that is step family life.

What do you guys think about that? Do you agree?

What's with BF's family thinking it's okay to walk up to me and say hi and coo at my baby, while completely ignoring me? A few of these relatives have done this a couple times to me now. His brother's wife wouldn't even include me in the conservations with my BF about our daughter. Thankfully not everyone was that rude and disrespectful and At least they were kind enough to include me in the family photos.

So things have been much better with BF lately. We haven't had any arguments in a while. Our daughter is turning 7 months and she's just the best baby! We will be taking her to music classes, swimming lessons and yoga these next few months, which will be fun! Seriously looking forward to Summer and beach trips and I'm just hoping we can have a great summer with his kids too.

What are different things you guys did and maybe still do to bond with your skids?

What has their treatment of you been like?

How has your relationship with them changed over the years as they've gotten older?

Did any of you end up genuinely loving your skids and did they express genuine love for you in return?

If you could go back in time, is there anything you would've done differently?


Why won't he just parent his kids!!!!!!!

I'm a 26 year old first time mom of a 4 month old baby girl. Dating a guy, 28, with 2 kids of his own from a previous relationship, BS8 and BD4. And the 4 month old is our daughter together. We aren't married yet and I honestly dont know if I'd ever marry him at this point because his kids drive me bonkers!
