My wife, Cindy, and I are a Stepfamily along with 6 children and 12 grandchildren that we share together. Cindy and I are now pursuing the challenges that step-families face, desiring to live out God’s plan as our two families blend together.
Stepfamiles are people who have intentionally chosen to love their spouses biological children and family relatives.
30% of all marriages each year are to remarriages
1300 new stepfamilies are forming every day
40% of couples with children are step-couples
75% of those divorced remarry
60% will divorce
80% can do well with support
100 million people in the US have a step-relationship of some kind.
