  • A family of five has about 20 relationships to manage but what about a stepfamily of five? Well, add the ex-spouses, their new partners and their children and a stepfamily of five has 210 relationships to manage. Then there is the confused identity multiplier. The stepdad has one idea of his role, his wife has a second, his stepchildren, biological child and his wife's ex-husband have others. That calculates to 420 relationships. No wonder stepfamilies are tired. Don't worry we've got your back.

Ron: It’s time for a little stepfamily math.

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

Ron: So, you’re a family of five. You’ve got about 20 relationships to manage but what about a stepfamily of five? Well, you have to add the ex-spouses, their new partners and their children so really a stepfamily of five has 210 relationships to manage.

Oh, and then there is the confused identity multiplier. You see, the stepdad has one idea of what his role is, his wife has a second, his stepchildren, biological child and his wife’s ex-husband have others. That calculates to 420 relationships. No wonder stepfamilies are tired and need a little support. Don’t worry we’ve got your back. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
