As a young man I would have gladly taken on a ready-made family. I never did, because in those days there was no internet dating, but if I had my time again I almost certainly would do. <br />
Although bringing up your own kids is hard work, and helping to bring up someone else's is harder, I felt that my experience as a stepson myself would have helped me along the way.
I will never date someone who has kids. I never like to be around kids, so it will not fair for him and his kids. My best friend is a stepfather of a boy for 16-17 yrs. He said this boy still tells him he is not a real dad and has no right to tell him what to do. This boy's real dad did not see this kid until he had graduated from high school. I respect my friend for all these years he had served for the kid, but I will never want to do that.
Not even if you paid me (for the reasons you cited above. I don't want kids and I'm certainly not gonna raise someone else's), no, and I can't answer the last because I don't know.
I was forty five, never had children, I married my 25 year old wife with her five little children, it was a major life adjustment, but worth it.
I love the way u think.. I admire men like u!!
Wow I never thought ppl thought like this. Smh
Of course....if you love someone you love everything that they come with.....its all or nothing.
Yes. No. Yes.
Honestly I'd only consider it if the husband had died. Why should I raise someone's kids if they don't want to?
Not right now. But eventually, perhaps.
To each their own path, a path is never clear until one takes it
