  • If you have minor children you need to answer that question. One dad wasn't sure what to do. His wife had died and now he was getting married. So, if he dies, should the stepmother be their guardian or those he and his first wife designated long ago? Who will the child trust and who is best positioned to lead them? In the beginning of a blended family that's likely not their stepparent but could become so in time. Don't base your decision on a dream but what's real and happening in your home.

Ron: So, if both parents die who gets your kids?

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

Ron: If you have minor children you need to answer that question. One dad just wasn’t sure what to do. You see, his wife had died and now he was getting married.  So, if he dies, should the stepmother be their guardian or those he and his first wife designated long ago?

I think this question is best answered from the child’s point of view. Who will they trust and who is best positioned to lead them? In the beginning of a blended family that’s likely not their stepparent but could become so in time. Listen, don’t base this decision on your dream family base your decision on what’s real and what’s happening in your home. You can always change it as love grows. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
