Getting married with children from previous relationships

Shop Weddings on Zazzle.com

kids from previous relationshipsI firmly believe that when you marry while you have children (under 18) from previous relationships that the union is as much as about the children as the bride and groom as it binds you all together as a family. As such any wedding plan should include the children's needs as much as your own.

What are your opinions and experience re this?

Problems that may arise when you re-marry with kids involved

I know from friends and stories I have read on Facebook that many issues can arise when you re-marry while having children from previous relationships not least problems with the ex.

The ex may not allow your children to attend the wedding or may put up barriers and objections.

You may want to invite relatives and friends of your ex who you remained close to, but your new partner won't allow it.

Your children may not want to attend your wedding.

The bride or grooms family may not recognise your children as part of the relationship and may be ignoring them and leaving them out of family gatherings.

Please share your experience, good and bad re the issues arising, so our readers can seek advice.

One thought on “Getting married with children from previous relationships

  1. My story is a bit different, but I do agree about binding a family together, by including your children. i sadly lost my mum 6 years ago and I took on my younger brother he was only 4 years old at the time and I was 23 ( he is now 10) I am getting married next year to my soul mate, and my little brother is giving me away, he is the only person in my life who would stop me getting married so only right he gives me away… Children are big part of your day ?❤️
