  • About the Guest

  • First, no, we don't grieve well as a society. It's un-American to sit in our sorrow. And second, we think we have dealt with the past. That's one reason people marry quickly again after a divorce or being widowed only to discover that grief is waiting for them on the other side of the wedding and the kids are grieving, too. And, now are resentful of your quick turnaround marriage. Look, grief needs your full attention. Don't act like it doesn't.

Ron: So, what do you think, do we grieve well?

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

Ron: Let me ask it this way. True or False: Most people, adults and children, have dealt with their past losses before moving into a blended family? I say False. First, no, we don’t grieve well as a society. It’s un-American to sit in our sorrow. And second, we think we have dealt with the past.

That’s one reason people marry quickly again after a divorce or being widowed only to discover that grief is waiting for them on the other side of the wedding and the kids are grieving, too. And, now are resentful of your quick turnaround marriage. Look, grief needs your full attention. Don’t act like it doesn’t. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
