WHY HELP BLENDED FAMILIES?

  •  Nationally, 40 percent of couples with children are stepcouples and 100 million people in the US have a step-relationship of some kind
  • 40 percent of all new marriages in the US are remarriage for one or both of the partners (Most form stepfamilies)
  • There are an additional 36 million Americans who are divorced or widowed (possibly finding themselves in a remarriage at some point)
  • Remarriage has a higher divorce rate due to the process of stepfamily "blending"
  • Stepparenting is radically different than parenting
  • Marital isolation is often tied to stressors like ex-spouses, previous hurt, or holiday/special day traditions and expectations
  • Stepcouples have conflict around kids and parenting

 

Below you'll find helpful resources to guide you on your path to building a blessed, healthy, and happy blended family that THRIVES!
