  • A new marriage does not restore the original family, it forms a different family. It doesn't give back to your kids a missing parent; it gives them a "stepparent" and a parenting team that is very different than the biological family system they were born into. Don't get me wrong, a stepfamily may work well for your kids but don't decide to marry based on a myth. Blended families are not "repaired" first families; they are different families with their own dynamics, challenges, and rewards.

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: When death or divorce dissolves your home, you’d like to bring back what was lost. Of course, you want to restore your family but here’s the deal. A new marriage does not restore the original family, it forms a different family.

For example, it doesn’t give back to your kids a missing parent; it gives them a “stepparent” and a parenting team that is very different than the biological family system they were born into. Don’t get me wrong, a stepfamily may work well for your kids but don’t decide to marry based on a myth. Blended families are not “repaired” first families; they are different families with their own dynamics, challenges, and rewards. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
