With our divorce-happy culture, it is easy to give in to the belief that you have married the wrong person. Do not rush into a separation. Instead, go to personal counseling, go to couples counseling. Make an effort to save your marriage.
Though it is very important for your children to see you forming new, healthy relationships with the ones around you, it is also important that they get to spend time with you as their parent. Sometimes step fathers or step mothers are so worried about bonding with their new step children that they sometimes neglect their own children by mistake. Remember to communicate with you children about their thought and feeling so that no one gets hurt in the process of forming the new family.
