Has Children: Them: Yes ___ No ___
If you want children in your life, be very clear about it. Decide if you don’t mind giving up your priorities for someone else’s children. Children must always be the priority in their parent’s lives. They should always come first.
Ages of Children: Them: Yes ___ No ___
What age are their kids, pre-school or high school? They all come with their own set of challenges. I remember dating a man who was a widower. His little boy wanted more than anything to have a new mommy. Unfortunately his father worked out of town most of the time and wanted to find a replacement for what his son needed and the work that was required around the house more than he wanted a loving relationship. It’s easy enough to understand his need, but I wasn’t ever going to be a priority.
As much as I enjoyed his little boy, I couldn’t take on the role of his mom without the whole package being included.
Teenagers are especially challenging. If you’ve ever been one, you know how difficult it can be.
If you’re up for it, then by all means, take it on. But go into it with open eyes.
