when it comes to my family
I have been married 13 years. He is my only marriage,I am his. Our son was born 17 months into our marriage. Neither of us have kids from a previous relationship
So on forms,we are a minority
We get asked if the other bio parent is coming/was informed/gave permission
The school has to ask us these things. Doctors and nurses have to ask these questions. We are asked if the the form we just filled out is correct because it only list us
Is it just me,or does this seem a little sad in a way? Maybe I'm just "old school"
My 15 year old dd told me that while working in a group with some other students in school, they started talking about which bio parent they lived with. My dd said that she lived with both bio parents and they looked at her in shock.
Out of all her friends she only has two whose parents are still married. So yes, we are in the minority!

I guess the medical & education fields are adjusting to the changes & covering all bases. Let's face it, when about 1/2 of marriages end in divorce these days, it's almost more common to be a blended family, single parent or grandparent raising grandkids, then the "traditional" sense of family. To me, family is where you find love & support, no matter what "form" it takes :)
