The Concrete Child
About the Guest
Sometimes couples think a "concrete child" will help solidify the wet cement of their stepfamily. Not a good idea. Common sense would say have the baby after you've had time to merge your family. You don't have a baby so someone will marry you and you don't give a wedding ring so someone will fall in love with you. You fall in love, you commit to a future together and then you give a ring. Let having a baby be about having a baby, not a tool for a family merger.
Having a baby will solidify our blended family, right?
