Around 2011 I told my husband that I wanted to write a book titled Blended Family Hell on Earth. No, it is not literally hell, but we definitely have so many more challenges than the commonly known “traditional family”. Studies show that 50% of marriages end in divorce and that 70% or so of blended families end in divorce. That means there are more blended and step families than ever before and that number is growing daily.
We consider this a place where we can share some of our own experiences and provide encouragement to others that are traveling a similar path along the way.
This is not a place for bashing others nor is it about what he said or she said, who is right, who did what, or biological children versus stepchildren, it is about the different challenges and struggles that families face and specifically blended families.
We are not alone and we are better together!
