Many couples enter into a blended family with high hopes for peace and harmony only to find themselves disillusioned. Many Christian couples make the poor assumption that because their relationship honors God the blending process will be smooth and pain-free.
Whether you are a Christian or not, being a part of a blended family comes with a unique set of challenges. For some it can feel like a messy but uplifting episode of The Brady Bunch, but for others it feels like a horror film that’s playing in an unending loop.
Blended families need to not only navigate the same challenges that traditional families face, they also face additional difficulties that are unique to their situation as no two blended families have the same dynamics.
Whether you are struggling with favoritism, controlling exes or a lack of unity in your marriage, there is hope.
That said, blending families can be very rewarding. Arming yourself with the skills to navigate through this unique situation will better position you for blended family bliss.
