How many of you has been married before or their DH?

How many kids did you or DH come into the marriage with?

How many more have you had together & how many more are you planning on having?

Share some insight on what makes your blended family work that might help someone else.






I was married once before, this is the 1st marriage for DH

I came into the relationship with 2 children. MJ was 2 and a half. JJ was 7 months old. DH didn't have any kids yet.

We had one son together who is 3 years old now. We want 1, maybe 2 more kids still.

What works for us is lots of communication about all issues and I have learned to include him on decisions with my older 2 kids instead of making him feel left out for not talking to him about these things.

This is my second marriage

I came into it with one child

We have had one so far, maybe one or two more, depending on how this goes.

As for what works... dunno, we talk about things more recently. We are way over our heads though right now.

Share some insight on what makes your blended family work that might help someone else. We are open and honest and we don't use step. But as for his son we have not seen him in 2 years cause his mom moved while he was deployed and we cant find her...she knows our number and address and we do not know hers...We send cs through the state we lived in and she is not getting them cause she has not given a recent address. He is the same age as my middle dd and he was a good kid and we really enjoyed having him and our kids miss him very much. It is very sad...ok now I am venting....onto the subject...We discipline together and we agree on how to raise them.
