  • Our culture tries to convince us that personal happiness is at the center of life. For example, the divorce culture says, "If I'm not happy in my marriage why should I have to stay?" and single parents sometimes think, "If I'm in love and happy, my kids will be happy, too." But there is no guarantee your romance will improve the lives of your children; in fact, your happiness can bring great unhappiness to your kids. So pursue romance but carefully consider how it's impacting your children.

Ron: If you’re a single parent or dating one, here’s a dating myth to avoid.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Our culture has tried to convince us that your personal happiness is at the center of your relationships. For example, the divorce culture says, “If I’m not happy in my marriage why should I have to stay?” and the dating culture says, “Live together, don’t marry, keep your options open.” Single parents sometimes think, “If I’m in love and happy, my kids will be happy, too.”

But there is no guarantee your romance will improve the lives of your children; in fact, if you’re not careful, your happiness can bring great unhappiness to your kids. So, pursue romance but carefully consider how it’s impacting your children. If it’s not a win for them, it’s not a win for you. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
