Ex in a relationship, no children. His partner shouted at me today that they are a blended family. Yes of course they are a family. I have never indicated otherwise to DC, but blended? I normally thought that involved multiple sets of children. There is only 1 child, in every family. So it got me thinking, what does a blended family look like?
No, that's my situation, but I have two children. Ex and I are both remarried to people with no DC or SC. There's just two couples and two kids (siblings) from the original relationship. We aren't a blended family.
Thank you! So, that's what I thought that the blended was mixing children, either from old families or with new siblings. And yes, judging from here it is a complex process! I don't think of my DC situation as being blended.
Sounds like your EX wife has been reading things on the internet and has misinterpreted the phase ‘blended’ family. It means the coming together of 2 sets of children.
Don’t agree at all with @lavendermint it’s ‘misery for the children, a lot of the time’. It may be in your case, but it’s not for the majority. Surely it’s better for children to see their parents in loving relationships with the right partners?
