What Every Couple in a Blended Family Should Know

This article is part of a 3-part series to help and support couples in stepfamilies from the pain and hurt that many families face.

We just celebrated 11 years of marriage. And I am happy to say that my marriage is stronger than ever and our blended family is in a really good place.

That’s not something I could have said seven years ago.

Like many couples in a blended family, we were headed for divorce. (Did you know two-thirds of all couples in stepfamilies end in divorce?)

The stress of trying to keep our marriage together while simultaneously trying to get this parenting/stepparenting thing right was too overwhelming.

But the good news is that we turned it around.

Check out this video below where we share exactly what we did to keep our marriage and blended family together.

The Good News is for Everyone

Having a family that is thriving and not just surviving is not only for a lucky few. Everyone that has a blended family can share in the good news.

 

The Good News is that you can provide your children with a great model for having a healthy relationship and marriage.

The Good News is that you no longer have to do it alone, you now have the support of your spouse.

The Good News is that your children learn problem-solving skills when they learn to adapt to the new family.

The Good News is that your children now have more loving responsible adults in their lives.

The Good News is that you don’t have to face this alone, there are millions of couples that have faced the same challenges you are facing, and they can show you how they did it.

The Good News is that no matter where you are today, you don’t have to stay there.

If you get the tools you need to address the issues you are facing in your family, you will be able to transform your family from where it is today to where you’ve always wanted it to be.

And that’s exactly what we did to turn things around. We didn’t come into our marriage with the skills we needed to face the unique challenges that blended families face. And they blindsided us and almost took us out…but the good news is that they didn’t!

(NOTE: When it comes to stepfamily issues you are not alone.

We’re excited to announce that we’re having a Blended Family Boot Camp here in Atlanta, GA on November 12th.  This is the first time that we are doing an event specifically for Stepfamilies and we’re excited!  And its’ about time!

As we share often, Lamar and I have a blended family which is why we are so passionate about making sure that families just like ours have the resources, tools and skills that they need to address the challenges that they WILL face in their stepfamilies. And we are not being presumptuous when we say you WILL face challenges.  The divorce rate for couples in stepfamilies is over 60%.

And that’s too high, especially when there are people and resources out there that can help you navigate through the tumultuous terrain of coming together as a family unit.

So here is why you need to join us at the Shift: Blended Family Boot Camp on Saturday November 12th :

  • Because we are bringing the country’s leading expert on stepfamily living, Ron Deal, to share with you and to give you the tools to make a shift in your blended family.
  • Because we are going to show you how to protect your marriage while you are facing challenges in your blended family.
  • Because you will learn how couples with blended families, just like you, have resolved the same issues that you are facing.  And you will have the opportunity to meet and network with couples that have faced challenges but are now able to overcome them.
  • Because your family is worth it. We want to show you how you can beat the odds for divorce! We want you to begin the transformation in your marriage to take it from where it is now to where you’ve always dreamed it would be.
