Is it possible to be a successful sp without BOTH bp support. When I say successful I mean like that of a fun aunt or another positive adult in the child's life? My advice to those who are thinking of marrying someone with kids is to only get married if both the kids parents support the remarriage. I really don't think If I had things to do over again I would remarry someone with kids if the kids other parent wasn't supportive of my presence in their lives. And they would have to show it. By actively involving me on some level. Bm would have never said that she didn't want her kids to have a sm- but- at every turn there were problems and drama.
So what do you guys think? My husband is a VERY successful sp- but he has had both bo support. I have had terrible success as a sp but-- I really have never had much support in my role either. Anyway- any thoughts?
