Interersting article which stated a shocking, but not surprising statistic that one in for step families dissolve after just one year together, and that half of re-marriages involving children ends in divorce. That a study done by Parentline Plus showed high instances of depression and anxiety by step-parents.
I loved this quote: "sometimes a dark alchemy takes hold in even the sanest and previously most stable individuals when they become part of "reconstituted" families." God, can I relate to that!!!
However, by making it past the one year crisis point, it's another indication how strong we all are! Another pat on the back to us!!
