Would you date/marry someone with kids? Do you have kids yourself? If you did, would you expect to be really involved?
I do not have kids and never want to have kids. I'm seeing someone now, but if I was single again I would not date a man with kids because I don't ever want to be a stepmom either.
In my opinion if you marry (or even seriously date and live with) a person who is a mom or dad, then you are taking on SOME parental responsibility. Even if you do not want that...it's kinda decided for you.
I've known several women who married guys with kids and then regretted it, or complained all of the time about the kids. Most guys I have known who married/dated women with kids were different, they were more than willing to take on some of the duties and stuff that is associated with parenting and being a role model etc. I'm not sure why this is so different. Just want opinions! :-)
