Me Plus 3 - Blended Family

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,


I was just wondering if anyone has any words of wisdom or inisight to marrying a man with 2 school age kids (6 boy & 13 girl). I have no kids of my own, but understand there could be some hurdles when dealing with blended families and kids at this age. Right now we are one big happy family, but is it too good to be true? I tend to get a pretty bias perspective from people close to me, so I would like an objective view from someone that may be directly involved or were involved in.


Thanks in advance

I don't think it'll be easy but take one day at a time. If they were gonna be evil I would have thought it would have happened before now.


Just be their friend and don't give them a hard time let their dad do it. FI said that was the prob with his family his mother let the step dad dish out everything and sometime it was really severe and it was really hard.

I agree take 1 day at a time and be their friend, let the dad make the important decisions and discipline them. Good Luck. I have 2 children of my own 21, 23 and they accept my FI with open arms, but his girls 17, 19 want nothing to do with me, which I feel is wrong but thats a hole different topic!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
