Hey FB, it is said that in America nearly 75% of all families are Step families or for the politically correct Blended families. You know as well as I do that their are people and even people in the church who remarry. That said here is the first thing you should know before you remarry, that’s if you decide to:

Eyes Wide Open, the following list represents key, “cost” and challenges” every single-parent (or those dating a single-parent) should know before deciding to remarry. Open wide both your eyes now and you-and your children- will be grateful later:

1. (Typically) Wait 2-3 years following divorce or the death of your spouse before seriously dating.

No kidding, most people need a few years to fully heal from a ending of a previous relationship. Moving into new relationships short-circuits the healing process, so do yourself a favor and grieve the pain, don’t run from it. In addition, your children will need at least this much time to heal and find stability in their visitation schedule. Slow down:)

Be of good cheer,
