Dating or marrying a divorced man with kids
But the truth is, it’s far from a walk in the park and there are some things that your average married couple doesn’t experience that you will.
Read on for some insider tips on what you should know before marrying a man with kids: Always remember your goals and what you want to accomplish as an independent woman.
We often get scared that a man won’t be able to fully love us if he’s already been married.
If you’ve never been married it can be intimidating to date someone who has already dedicated their lives so someone and possibly had children with them but let’s look at it realistically and realize that you’ve also felt deep love for someone else and you can’t hold it against someone.
Just because you went from single woman to having a family doesn’t mean your goals need to disappear.
In fact, we were scheduled to marry three times and had to cancel each time because my boyfriend's son "couldn't get the time off." He will not allow me into his home. I am unemployed and looking for work in the area where I live.
My boyfriend tells me to seek employment in the area HE lives.
I say that is not reasonable because I do not live in his area, hence a catch-22 situation. After we marry, he has asked that I sell my home and put the money toward his residence (he had to take out a large amount to pay off his ex). One possible reason your boyfriend's son does not like you may have nothing to do with you and everything to do with his parent's divorce.
You can support your boyfriend by encouraging him to spend time with his son and letting his son express the hurt feelings he has over the loss of his parents' relationship.
I am afraid that if this conversation does not take place, the son will always have a reason to not attend his father's wedding.
