At FamilyLife, we are very aware of the unique challenges faced by those in blended families.
Traditionally, when a couple marry, they come together as a couple first, and children are added to the family later. Within blended families, family comes first, and it can be very hard for a couple to ever have time to themselves. Their relationship can offen be subject to the needs within their complex family dynamics. The children also need help to adjust to the changes in their world.
We hope to be holding some events for blended families this year so please keep checking the website for details.
