If you are a man or woman, can marry and live a happy married life with a child from a previous relationship?
When you love somebody, I believe it means loving everything about that person. Be it the parents, siblings even his or her child from a previous relationship. A male friend of mine told me about a lady he just met and really likes but the annoying thing according to him was that she already has a male child from her previous relationship and that has pissed him off.
I asked him why, he said he can't just marry a woman who's first child isn't his and he's not really to carry the burden of another man's child. Well,this got me speechless and thinking cos I know some ladies marry men who have children from other women.
The first issue is the existential one of whether it is important to reproduce or not. If you decide you are comfortable with the idea of remaining childless, you have many more choices in life.
If you want to reproduce, the most reasonable way to accomplish that is by being in a stable marriage with a woman with the same goal.
If you start a relationship with her you will probably have to meet her children pretty soon. If you are dating her regularly you will probably have to go out with the family on occasion. If you marry her or move in with her you will probably be expected to provide some financial support for her children, and assume some parental duties.
So I would like to know if you as a man or woman can marry and live a happy married life with a child from a previous relationship?
