My husband and I this week celebrate 10 years in a very happy second marriage. It's a big milestone for us as both our first marriages ended just short of 10 years so it tips the balance. I thought I'd share what I think has worked to help others along the way.
Quick background: when we married we each had one son from a first marriage that had ended a couple of years previously. His son was almost 9 and mine just five. His son's mother was overseas so not in regular contact. My son's father saw him regularly.
At this point we really feel like a family and have very positive relationships although we both acknowledge that we feel a deeper attachment to our own biological child than to the other and under stress have more tolerance for our own kid. Our boys (now aged 19 and 15) are close and remarkably alike in their ideas and interests, though
