I'm 33, SO is 32

I have a Daughter, 17
I have a Son, 14

He's got two sons, 7 &5

We've got a son together who is 8 mos.

My kids live with us full time, but see my ex every-other weekend, for the most part. My ex and I have a very amicable relationship, He actually called me tonight and chatted with me for over an hour. We were kids when we married (I was 17 and he was 19), so we kinda grew up together.

SO's boys live with their mom. Up until June of last year, he had no contact with them for about a year because, well, his ex is a nut job. He's been seeing them since August of last year once a week at a visitation center so that he could get reacquainted with them. They call him by his first name, and call their new step-father, Daddy. Oh, and the step-father was my SO's best friend since middle school. We've recently settled the court case and are working our way up to overnight visits. I don't expect it to be easy dealing with his ex, but they are great boys!!

I am 32 and my husband is 40. I have a step son that is 8, and we have a boy due August 27. The family dynamic in my house is highly functioning since I have been on the scene since my step son was 4. The relationship with the ex is stressed at best. We have my step son not quite half time with weekends, summers and school breaks.
First child, a boy, due August 27. Step-mother to eight year old boy.

I am 32 DH is 35. He is my first husband and I am his second wife. He has 3 children DS is 15 from a prior relationship and DD is 11 and DS is 6. (these are with his ex wife). We have custody of the 15yo and we have a 4 month old son together. Our relationship with the 15yo mother is good but with the ex wife it is pretty bad. We see the 11yo and 6yo on weekends, usually every other but mostly it has been every weekend.

I am 25 and DH is 35. DH has been married once before and this is my first (and only) marriage. I have a wonderful 8 year old SS. I've known him since he was three. BM is a total wacko though Thankfully DH is a great Dad and they have joint legal and physical custody, so I'm sure we are luckier than some. We are currently TTC our first child together.
