Well, I would treat like their were my own. All children need love and care. Without that is´t impossible to function like an individual in modern times. <br />
And your husband would appreciate it a lot. <br />
Be firm and don´t let his children run you over and be strong. You are the wife in the house. <br />
If there is a ex - wife, then ask her to take care of the children once in a while. <br />
Again it depends on the scenario, and how this can be arranged. A lot of factors do play in and reasons as well. <br />
And one more thing: <br />
Good luck and trust yourself!
Yes, I am agreed with you. And being a second mother is not always easy, but it´s important for the marriage to function. Sometimes the fathers really don´t care about their children, and that hurts me the most. Yours or not, they need your love and care.
Today´s family life is more complicated then simple :)
I do and I treat him like my son as I raised him since he was 6 months old and I had all my firsts as a father with him... We are father and son
Like family. They're young children, it must have been hard on them to be separated from their mother.
Very young children under the age of 5, would be treated as my own. Older children, are set in their ways, and would not look to me as a mother figure.
Like a nuisance.
To me it would feel like baggage, as I do not have kids nor do I want any. Believe me, I tried & it killed my relationship.
Maybe.... maybe not.
I prefer no kids.
Yeah but they also kill romance. Some kids are just brats that need a good slap.
you would be their step-mother and should treat them like a loving parent treats his/her own children.. if you cannot do that, you probably shouldn't marry a guy who has children...
very true. thank you for best answer..
Like step-kids... They are not yours, they have a real mother, you can only be a 'guide' for them and love them a lot. I'd try to be a good a parent.
As in-laws. You have your own parents (if you have them). You can treat them with love and respect and you should but it would be very ignorant to treat strangers as the parents who nurtured and guided you for 20-30 years. As for kids, that's different, and complicated and depends on how the real parents separated, kids age, visiting rights, everything...
That would be nice, a big happy family. But in all that love, I'd spare a bit more for my parents, just out of respect ;)
