I would never have a family with stepparents, half siblings, etc. nor would I ever share my kids with stepparents and kids from other stepparents marriages. I don't know how anyone could stand that.
First off I am not saying you shouldnt do it I am saying I never wld. If my dh god forbid died or cheated or suddenly a kid popped up with his DNA I would leave and take my kids with me. And I would focus on my kids, focus on working, focus on my pets, my home, etc. I wouldnt date again or marry or anything.
This is just me. I see so many blended families and they are miserable. Fighting, crying, screamingm accusing, arguing about the kids, the exes, etc. I know a lot of u r saying
Hey our blended family is awesome and happy. Some of u r telling the truth but I believe that a lot of u aren't being honest. Jmho.
