Dating: Are You Trying to Scare Us? Wednesday, January 25, 2023
What are you doing? Are you trying to scare us? I get a lot of responses to my resources for stepfamilies. One fairly predictable comment from dating couples is, “Ron, are you trying to scare us out of getting married?” No, I’m not. But I am trying to prepare you for life. Let me explain this from the other side. A lot of married stepfamily couples say, “Ron, where were you 10 years ago? We could have avoided a lot of problems had we known this stuff.” If you are a single parent or dating one, I don’t want you to say that to me in 10 years.
