Dating: Myth #3 Marriage Repairs Your Home

with Ron Deal | January 30, 2020

A new marriage does not restore the original family, it forms a different family. It doesn't give back to your kids a missing parent; it gives them a "stepparent" and a parenting team that is very different than the biological family system they were born into. Don't get me wrong, a stepfamily may work well for your kids but don't decide to marry based on a myth. Blended families are not "repaired" first families; they are different families with their own dynamics, challenges, and rewards.
