I met them before I met DH.  Somehow I don't think that's typical.

DH and I had been dating for 6 months, and were discussing marriage. I would've put it off longer though - I was SO nervous.

3. They were 12, 10, and 7 at the time.

What about the kids in your situation?

Earlier than I wanted to. I wanted to wait 6-8 months. Met BM1 4ish months after we started dating. Met his daughter with BM1 shortly after that. Met his other daughter when she was 3-4 months old, we had been dating about 9 months. Met her mom "officially" shortly after that.

I am BM not SM. Dh met DD after 3 months and i knew marriage was in our future. Before him none of the men I dated met her. My ex otoh thought every chick he met was "new mommy" so who knows how many women he brought around her before disappearing.

A friend of mine waited 6 months before introducing her DD to her SO and they are moving in together on their 2 year anniversary. She had a bad divorce with her exh (not bd) and took things very slow this time around.

I met them about a month after we started dating.  But we were basically inseperable, and between having my kids all the time and him having his two nights per week and EOWE (and us living about 40 minutes apart), it made sense to do things with all of the kids together.  His kids were 6 and 8 and mine were 4 and 8.

I've know the son before the parents even divorced. He rode at a dirt bike track I run. I didn't meet the daughter till after we were dating for a few months. But I did call BM when he asked if I wanted to meet them. I wanted to make sure she was ok with me meeting them
