Ron: Money matters really tap into the best and worst of us. In stepfamilies, sometimes it calls to light differing emotional connections and loyalty issues that can be used as a weapon to divide. We hear from stepparents who feel pushed out when their adult stepchild asks their parent to add their name to the checking account or life insurance; and from those who discover that their spouse has been loaning money to an adult child without their knowledge.

Hey, there’s no room for secrets or emotional games in blended families especially between spouses. The way you handle money should draw you together, not push you apart. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
