How long?

How long should you wait to get married to someone after you've already had children from a previous relationship? Is a year a substantial amount of time? Or should it be longer, a year seems long enough anything less is out of the question IMO.

  • i don't think it really matters much cause they will still have to adjust with the marriage and that is when things truly begin. i married my new husband 8 months of knowing each other although i had been divorce 12 yrs before that but i knew he was the one and he got along great with my kids. so i figured the sooner the better. the kids needed a father again since their dad moved to texas. things have gone quite well. i think when you know the kids and the guy well enough you know it will work no matter how long you wait. why put off what's going to happen anyway. i didn't want to. we actually moved up the wedding date.

  • I think you should marry when you feel you are ready, but just make sure all the big issues are discussed (children, discipline, money etc) before you do!
